I am an experienced mental health and substance use disorder therapist who is dedicated to helping people explore their full potential.

My theory of counseling is an integrative approach. There are various ways of implementing diverse theories and techniques in which people can benefit from. I focus on the delivery of therapy in creative ways. The basis of my counseling theory is a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma informed care, dialectic behavior of mindfulness, and a family systems approach. We can use EMDR, breathing, yoga and dance to help you find your new beginning. The art of effective counseling not only addresses the identified need of the person, but the co-existing issues related to family, relationships, employment, education, spirituality, physical health, and mental health. I believe the development of an effective counselor depends on the presence of attitudes, being in the here and now, reflecting openness to alternative approaches, appreciation of diversity, and most importantly the willingness to change. I truly enjoy finding creative ways to connect with people. Anxiety, depression and trauma can live in our bodies and need to be addressed on a level that provides the relief you are looking and discovery of your true potential.
