Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
My experience includes depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting challenges, substance use/addictions, and counseling in culturally sensitive situations, specifically, Unaccompanied Minors presenting with trauma, abuse, and familial challenges. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed CBT.
I value respect, compassion, safety, integrity and honesty. My approach to counseling is contingent on the needs of the individual.
I am currently offering telehealth sessions only; this will not hinder the counseling process and sessions are conducted on a HIPAA-compliant video platform with face-to-face interaction. The intake process is initiated electronically prior to the first session and goals are set collaboratively. In subsequent sessions, I will challenge you and provide honest feedback and observations. Therapy requires openness and a willingness to talk about difficult topics at your own pace. Homework assignments are common and include psychoeducation with worksheets, journaling reflections, and videos. I work well with millennials and those in Generation Y. The feedback I have received is positive and my clients have expressed feeling affirmed and understood.
