I have been providing individual and family counseling for 30 years, from a multicultural system perspective. Years of experiences has led me to believe that the most important aspect of counseling is to have a listening ear and the development of a trusting therapeutic relationship with a non-judgmental approach. I possess strong assessment skills for family conflict resolution and mediation. . Life transitions causes us to be in a storm or coming out of a storm, leading to life disruptions which can be extremely stressful; a skillful therapist such as myself can help clients to redirect and deal with a variety of traumas.

**Accepting new clients! Openings morning and night!** Finding time to reconnect with your family can be challenging. With the addition of children, extended families, school, work, and a pandemic, relationships can become strained. So easily can we find ourselves in survival mode where communication is limited and we do what we must to get through the day. I help families and couples identify issues, and facilitate change by rebuilding communication, resolving family conflict, and reflecting on the impact of the family system.

My focus is to empower families by improving their relationships and communication so family members are more of a support than a burden to each other. Family issues that I commonly treat are couple's communication, sexual issues in a relationship, mixed-agenda couples (where one is considering a divorce), co-parenting after a divorce, behavior issues with children, as well as abuse or neglect in families. I also help families where a member struggles with self-injury, depression, or anxiety.

I enjoy assisting others who are struggling with past and or present trauma, feelings of depression, and or anxiety. I like to utilize a strengths-based perspective and problem-solve to solutions and options they can utilize in order to experience relief and even perhaps resolution from their struggles. I like to teach skills they can utilize in order to self-soothe and or calm themselves. Sometimes treatment modalities such as EMDR, Trauma-focused CBT, Sand Tray and or Play Therapy with children can be beneficial to help one look inside themselves and identify the source of their struggles and collaboratively we find an answer.

Over the years and after receiving thousands of initial calls and emails from clients, it is clear that many are unsure of what they need or where to go. We find great pleasure in helping clients navigate this process. As a group practice we are able to provide services for a variety of needs: anxiety, addictions, pain management, depression, relationship issues, psychological testing, individual, life transitions and even helping clients who just want to live their best life! We stand out in our efforts to make this process as smooth as possible. Many providers boast about their training in a particular treatment approach (and this is important) but research suggests that the interventions are only part of the story. The fit between client and clinician, the wellbeing of the clinician, the ease of access and the experience of the treatment process matter as much, and sometimes more, than the particular treatment model used. Pillars of Wellness was founded with the hope of ensuring an ideal client-clinician fit and providing both clients and clinicians with a positive experience. We let our clinicians excel at their craft by giving them the space to create their ideal practice.
