I have over five years’ experience as a clinical mental health counselor.
My experience entails working with a diverse client population from children, teen, adults and couples. My approach has always been client centered and goal directed. I am very eclectic in my manner of counseling and treat each person as unique with unique life experiences and circumstances. I use techniques unique to client needs, including: CBT, Solutions Focused, Motivational interview and DBT. Working together to find the most effective treatment strategies is essential, in helping clients reach their therapeutic goals.
I have experience working closely with individuals that suffer from Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, most personality and mood disorders and crisis stabilization.
I love people, and I love helping people through struggles. I listen with a non-judgmental caring heart, knowing we have all struggled in different ways.
