I assist individuals in finding healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships with one another to discover the strength they possess. I use a multicultural/sociocultural lens while practicing Solution Focused therapy when discussing issues with clients dealing with a range of difficulties. However, he understands that no single approach is the right one for every individual, so he eagerly trains in various modalities to include traditional counseling and systems theories to postmodern theories. I am a proponent of healthy living, which is evident in the holistic approach I use in the sessions.

Everyone deserves to be heard. Broken bones can be spotted by the passerby, however when a person has emotional, ongoing struggles, a helpful ear and professional guidance is what is needed. I would love to be able to assist anyone in need.
Counseling is a tool one uses to identify personal shortcomings as well as gaining insight into one’s own self-exploration. My approach to counseling begins with establishing a working collaboration with the client. As a therapist, I believe it is my responsibility to demonstrate to each client that they are in a safe, trusting, environment, and to help them understand why they are having difficulties.
Counseling encompasses adhering to ethics established in the profession and not interjecting my personal beliefs and values into the therapeutic process. Most importantly, letting clients know and feel they are the most important aspect of any process is a must.
Each client is unique and will present different challenges. Using different counseling modalities, adapted to the uniqueness of each client, will help get to the core issues. My goal is to empower clients, providing them with confidence that they can overcome any challenge in the future.
*****Not Accepting New Clients Currently*****My focus is to serve youth and adults through life transitions. I additionally, love working with couples in any stage of their relationship (premarital, committed, or married). I employ a multi-generational approach and strongly believe that the family you were born into effects the person you are today. I also recognize that culture and heritage play into how you create meaning, which is why I take every opportunity to honor this part of individuals, as it is an important part of my identity.
It is a passion of mine to bridge any gaps between the spiritual self and the mental/emotional self. I will support you in recognizing the strength of your spirituality and the potential barriers of your religiosity, understanding that both can coincide without destroying your faith.
I offer a free 30 minute non clinical consultation so that we can determine if it will be a good fit. Please call and see if I can help support you on your journey.
