WHAT WE DO
I’m passionate about finding innovative ways to help my clients recover from life’s daily challenges. My clinical work involves providing counseling to clients with: anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, chronic relapse, poor communication, low self-esteem, LGBTQ concerns, problematic sexual behaviors, and grief and loss.
In most cases your first appointment can be scheduled within 72 hours. Evening and weekend appointments are available for the convenience of my clients.
Individual counseling is a one-to-one discussion between the counselor and the client. The two form a therapeutic relationship that promotes trust and personal growth. Individual counseling focuses on the client’s immediate or near future concerns.
Couples counseling is available to clients regardless of marital status. The focus of therapy is helping the couple resolve the issues that have led to the relationship disord, improve healthy communication, and gain tools for dealing with problems that may arise in the future.
DRUG & ALCOHOL
Clients often seek drug and alcohol assessments upon order of the criminal justice system, on the advice of an attorney, or at the direction of their employer or professional licensing authority. The purpose of the assessment is to determine whether a substance use disorder is present and to provide recommendations for treatment. A report detailing the findings is furnished approximately 7-10 working days after the assessment.
Most physicians who prescribe Suboxone for medication assisted treatment (MAT) require that clients participate in group or individual counseling as part of a comprehensive treatment program. I will work with you and your physician to ensure that you remain compliant with the counseling requirements. Your physician will be provided with documentation of participation and compliance with treatment. Note: It is your responsibility to speak with your doctor regarding the frequency required by your provider.
WHAT WE OFFER
Areas of Specialty
These are only a few of the conditions I treat in clinical practice.
Substance Use Disorders
Whether you are seeking treatment for the first time, or you are struggling to stay sober following a period of sobriety, I can help you address the underlying reasons for your substance abuse.
Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are two of the most common reasons for seeking mental health treatment. There are many treatment options available.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is particularly effective in treating both anxiety and depression. CBT examines the relationship between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings and the behaviors that follow. CBT helps clients explore how their perceptions affect how they respond in certain situations. In other words, a person’s thought process informs their behaviors and actions.
The Counseling Center is a Safe Zone for our LGBTQ counseling clients. When seeking counseling, finding a qualified mental health professional who has experience and familiarity with issues that confront the LGBTQ community is critical. Therefore, I believe in providing LGBTQ affirmative treatment. Whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or queer, everyone deserves to be supported, understood, and celebrated.learn more
