I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with years of experience working with people of various ages to overcome behavioral and emotional issues. I approach counseling from a holistic view, utilizing various theoretical approaches that fits with the individual needs. I conduct sessions through a strength-based perspective, and utilize other modalities that apply to the clients need such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Psychoeducation.
I believe in the idea of collaboration to create realistic goals and to encourage clients to develop their own sense of wellbeing and to foster a sense of fulfillment. I assist in developing appropriate coping skills, to increase the ability to problem solve, and to manage everyday stressors and past trauma. I strive to provide a safe and relaxed environment so that there is a sense of comfortability expressing any thoughts or feelings.
