I do have special interest in working with teens and adults as well as (but not limited to) substance abuse and trauma.
Questioning the reasons to your suffering, what to do and even yourself is very natural when you struggle in not having the answers or even the support you (or a love one) need. Whether your struggles are internal, external, involve anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, grief, addiction(s) or are within relationships that result in feeling disconnected and dissatisfied with yourself and life, know that you absolutely have the internal ability and strength to overcome these obstacles . . . my passion is to help others learn, feel and trust this fact.
I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral therapy approaches (a psycho-social intervention that is the most widely used evidence-based practice) to helping individuals and families in learning about and how to change unhelpful thinking, feeling and behaving through supportive problem solving techniques to better re-discover yourself, reach improved self-acceptance, freedom and yes, Happiness!
I understand and respect the immense courage it takes to seek guidance and support; it would be my privilege to walk with you through your personal journey of healing, peace and genuine happiness!
“If you wonder whether the glass is half-empty of half-full, you are missing the point . . . the glass is refillable!”
You have thankfully come this far, so I invite you to take a step further, lets change “One day to day One!”
I look forward to meeting you!
