I have seven years of clinical experience; I have a bachelor’s in business administration and a Masters in Mental health counseling. I was a Director of Operations at a charter school, and this is where I realized that helping people was what I was meant to do. I have experience as a substance abuse counselor; I facilitated various groups such as IOP, relapse prevention, anger management, parenting, as well as individual therapy.
I utilize a variety of techniques and skills drawn from recognized therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, Psychoeducation, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Guided Imagery, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness and relaxation. I work with clients of all ages from 5-66 with a diverse background of diagnosis such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, substance use, etc.
I believe therapy is a working partnership and it is important to utilize one’s strengths to help sort out challenges for maximum goal achievement.
