Specializing in providing mental health/substance abuse counseling services to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.

I strive to tailor treatment to a client’s specific needs by addressing their personal strengths to reach their goals. Focus is on changing problematic behaviors, feelings, & thoughts by discovering their meanings by challenging and replacing negative thinking patterns. I offer Diagnostic Assessments & testing to clarify or rule out specific diagnoses (ADHD, ASD, Substance Abuse); Psychological Evaluations to assess a person’s current level of cognitive, academic, emotional & social functioning. I utilize Integrative Therapy consisting of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MIT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused, Multi-Systemic and Person-Centered modalities.
