I have experience through an internship, education, and work, in treating individuals dealing with mental health disorders, substance abuse/dependence, domestic violence, EAP and anger issues. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with anxiety and depression. I am passionate about issues related to women's emotional health, interpersonal relationships, family problems and victims of trauma. For over 10 years I have worked extensively with individuals and families dealing with grief and loss.
I like working with individuals, couples, groups, and families, as well as individuals from a wide variety of cultures and ethnic backgrounds. My theoretical orientation is drawn from an Existential/Person-Centered philosophy that emphasizes the value of life, and the importance of self. I will assist you in interpreting and identifying needs which can result in changes. Let me tell you what to expect in counseling. A safe place and an opportunity to talk in confidence about concerns or issues impacting your life, interfering with you achieving your objectives. My approach to counseling is eclectic to integrate an array of therapeutic interventions suited for your needs.
