I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Reaching out for support often comes during a time of crisis or after living for many years with the weight emotional pain. Bringing people from crisis to hope is the forefront of my practice. The lack of access to quality mental health care for persons of color is real, and mental health needs are at times unmet. My cultural competence through life experience has allowed me to work well with individuals of diverse backgrounds.

Welcome. I have been at this almost forty years. Enjoy it now more then ever. Over the years I believe I have developed some skill working with Adolescent and families, and those experiencing problems with Substance Use and Abuse. I Started working with Adolescents and Families in residential treatment, schools and hospitals. Two years in a Methadone Clinic provided an early glimpse into Opiate addiction. A mid-life descent into Alcoholism provided a very personal understanding of addiction and recovery. I know that recovery can occur both within and outside the AA model.
A strong rapport between client and therapist, through which the therapist attunes to the client's unique set of needs, is an essential catalyst of positive change. The fact that you are here, seeking support, demonstrates your courage and capacity for self-compassion.

I can help you work through the intense emotions and overcome the obstacles in your way.

The grief process or ups and downs of an illness tend to feel like a roller coaster of emotions. I will give you hope, encouragement, and emotional support while helping you find the strength to cope effectively.
Understanding what is motivating a child’s behavior often takes a trained eye. The therapeutic relationship will help foster an understanding, work towards preventing and managing psychological based distress for both parents and children. Children often do not have the words to let parents know why they are acting the way they do. Parents wonder is this just a phase my child is going through? As a therapist my role is to gain an understanding of what makes your child do what he or she is doing. Working together with parents is a critical part of the therapeutic process to foster your child's success.
Are you seeing that things could be much better and are not quite sure which path to take?
