Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, family counseling, relationship counseling, military counseling
Are you ready to better understand your situation? Do you want to move forward toward resolving difficulties in your life? As your therapist, I will use my knowledge of human development and behavior to assist you in gaining this understanding. I will enter into a dialogue with you regarding possible solutions. Together, we will examine your feelings/emotions, thoughts and behaviors. I will support you as you consider trying new approaches. Counseling can lead to better relationships, solutions to specific problems and significant reductions in feelings of distress.
In 1996, I earned a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling for St. Thomas University in Miami. Fl. I obtained a Doctorate of Psychology in 2005 from Southern California University of Professional Studies. After working for a community health agency for six years, I began work in private practice. I have worked closely with a psychiatrist since 2003, sharing and collaborating on patient care. Consequently, I have extensive expertise in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional disorders, such as Depression, Anxiety Disorders, and Bipolar Disorder. I provide the cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal therapies needed for the patients to address the psycho-social stressors of their lives.
In addition, I work in a second practice along with other counselors and psychologists. At both locations, I provide individual counseling for adults, children and adolescents as well as marriage and family therapy. As an Employee Assistance Provider for many companies, I have a long history of providing assessments and brief solution-focused counseling. Finally, I have worked as a Military Family and Life Consultant since 2009 to serve out military service members and families with counseling as is needed to help ensure a strong and ready military. Clients have told me that they feel counseling with me has been more successful to them than any previous experience in therapy. They state that I am “down to earth”, which helps them to trust me and allows them feel very comfortable with me.
