If you are struggling with life transitions, grief/loss, relationship problems, parenting or caregiving stress, aging issues, terminal illness, infertility, mood concerns, substance use/codependency issues, career distress, self-esteem issues, or other adjustment concerns, I will be delighted to support you as your therapist. I've counseled in settings including hospice, detention centers, private practice, and community mental health centers. I'm also an author who researched/wrote collaboratively with many multicultural experts to publish the textbook "The Handbook for Multicultural Counseling."
Due to my belief that living fully in the present is critical to mental health, I use therapies that focus on emotional healing, cognitive insight and developing solutions behaviorally. I utilize techniques that help with taking ownership of problems for the purpose of maximizing choice and control over personal decisions/reactions to difficulties.
Be proud of yourself for seeking help! It's not always easy to be human in this world where we don’t know everything. We ALL need others and need answers/solutions to the challenges we confront in life. Sometimes we just need someone to listen. I am here to journey with you through this phase of life and help you arrive to the healthy place you want to be.
