I can help you with the following counseling areas:
  • Individual Counseling
  • Marriage/Couple Counseling
  • Familiy Counseling 
  • Clinical assessments and reports based on those assessments as needed. 
My special client interests include working with clients who are of senior age; under educated; veterans; or who are part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) community. The therapeutic environment that is created with you is built on trust and openness, and this will in turn allow us to work together as a team to create the goals you set for yourself. I have been in practice since 2013, and have met many clients from all walks of life who experience a range of various issues from mild to severe.
How I can help you: 

Your experience in counseling will be a time of supportive growth and change, and acknowledged as someone worthy of dignity, and respect. I have been both humbled and honored to have provided effective counseling assistance to many different clients from various life circumstances, challenges, and situations - mild to severe. My experience involves working with diverse clients in agencies for several years before entering private practice. I continually engage in research on new ways to help current clients and prospective clients like you, as well as participate in ongoing continuing education courses to further enhance my professional skills. This in turn, benefits the clients I humbly serve on their journey.
Many of the continuing education courses I take and the research I conduct, often reflects the current type of work I am doing with clients. Staying abreast of the various trends and issues in the field of counseling is an ongoing process. This level of professional involvement enhances my practice with clients, and provides them with quality services. I have additional education in the areas of trauma, and ongoing educational enhancement in professional ethics. I would be honored to be given an opportunity to assist you as well, if you are seeking services at this time.
