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 a doctor of Clinical Psychology. I also hold a Master of Science degree in General Psychology, and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a trained EMDR therapist as well. I have over 15 years of working in the mental health field and being a psychotherapist and a clinician is my calling.
The decision to seek help for issues impacting your mental health is not an easy one to make. However, when you finally do make that decision, you need a therapist who is able to connect with you as a person.
Depression; Anxiety; PTSD; Various Trauma; Addictions; Personality Disorders; Schizophrenia ; Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder are only some of the mental health conditions routinely treated in Peace and Hope Counseling. I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people. Through our work together I hope to enhance feelings of worth and dignity. I feel that this is important because when our self-esteem is at its zenith, our ability to cope with the problems of life is enhanced. My approach is one that puts the individual at ease and makes the experience of therapy as normal as possible.
