Sometimes life gets difficult and reaching out for help can be even more difficult. This is especially true when we may be experiencing the effects of disability. My philosophy as a counselor is help you navigate these challenging times and help you reach your full potential emotionally, mentally, or socially. I believe focusing on the individuals strengths that they already posses will help facilitate change. As well as conceptualizing and addressing struggles in a wholistic lens allows for deeper understanding of what may be occurring.

XX Accepting NEW clients XX Trauma happens when stressful experiences deplete our physical, mental, or emotional resources. Unresolved traumas can persist as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and a variety of other distressing symptoms that wreak havoc on our daily lives. I do not believe that we "get over" our traumas, but rather that we find a way through them. As your therapist, I will walk beside you in your journey through trauma as you regain control over your personal story.

Life have you a little unbalanced? This is where you change your story. I will walk with you as you set goals and get back in control of your life. Together we’ll find the tools and supports you need to be successful. Most of us find it difficult to change. What is it that you’d like to have different in your life? Within a narrative framework, we can look at your story through your lifetime and you can gain hope and support for change, both in you and in your environment. I offer unconditional positive regard for the people that come to me. My goal is to help people feel safer in a world that doesn’t always feel safe.

I believe that the essence of life is Divine and that all good flows from that source. Thus, any strength that emerges in my work occurs as I align myself with Divine love, wisdom, and purpose. Holism describes my perspective, thus systematically exploring many areas of a client's life helps prepare the ground for resolving current problematic issues or for encouraging and supporting growth and transformation.

I have provided clinical social work services in human service agencies, hospitals and outpatient clinics since 1986. To address the broad spectrum of populations and needs in these locations, I have received specialized training in Solution-Focused Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, EMDR, and Marital/Family Therapy. At the same time, I know that the most important factor is not technical expertise; unless the client feels safe and understood, therapy can't get started! I enjoy developing collaborate relationships with clients, and then selecting an integrated approach tailored to meet their unique needs.
