My first and foremost approach to counseling is to foster within the individual the ability to discern and choose the inner messages that bring them peace, joy and hope. This is the first step in the journey to become authentic self, to be able to know intuitively what is a correct choice, and what is a choice meant to please others, and conform. Equipped with that insight, an individual sets the bar and boundaries for themselves establishing the way they permit others to interact with them. In addition to the intrapsychic strategies, which are my approach with all clients, is recognition of unique challenges related to self-acceptance, internal and external identities, history and healing from trauma, and understanding where life influences and intersects with a person's emotional, social, behavioral and environmental challenges.
I am a nationally certified, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC), with additional certification as a clinical trauma professional (CCTP). I believe that every person has the potential to achieve. However, sometimes, we do not know what we want or need. We hear mixed messages from within ourselves, and from others, like our parents, teachers, friends, media, and religion.
As a therapist, I help my clients untangle the messages and decide which messages bring feelings of darkness, and which lead to peace and joy. Together we find stolen hopes and dreams and discover the path to achieving them. I am experienced working with individuals from adolescence through older adults, as well as families. Thank you for considering me as one to be there for you. I will listen, share perspective, and even provide direction.
I have been a world-changer for my entire life, engaged in efforts to better my corner of the world. I feel the same desire today and believe that leadership and advocacy in my profession will benefit my clients, myself, and our global community.
