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.
I am an LPCA (intern). I focus on divorce recovery, abandonment issues, anxiety, depression, life changes due to work or car injuries, loss of job, and loss of a loved one.
Mediation in therapy – For the preservation of relationships by open communication and problem solving which is an important part of a healthy family. It empowers the participants to negotiate, compromise, and sign an agreement that will hold the participants accountable. Mediation is great for family problems, parent and child issues, and sibling issues. I speak English and Spanish.
I believe everybody needs love, understanding, and compassion. These are basic and essential human needs (even for animals). When life becomes “undone,” sometimes we need help from a professional counselor to help us get back to the road of living a fulfilling life. I feel that with my education along with personal life experiences, I have acquired the necessary tools to help my clients become whole again. Whole means being mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy; I call these the four pillars of life.
