I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 25 years of mental health experience. Much of this experience was gained during my service in the United States Army serving veterans and their families faced with a wide variety of mental health challenges.
During my military service I have gained expertise in combat stress, post-traumatic stress, military transitions and deployment, marriage and family therapy, depression, suicide, anger management, stress management and critical incidents related to traumatic events. As a veteran of the United States military I understand the challenges of serving, and the mission of transitioning after service.
I incorporate multiple evidence-based treatment modalities to guide the counseling process. Solution-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Play Therapy are most frequently used and are tailored to fit the needs of each individual. I enjoy working with children of all ages, adolescents, and family members. When possible, working with children and adolescents it is important to take a holistic approach by including the family unit, parents, and schools. Our children deserve to be safe, healthy and happy.
Research shows that unhealthy relationship may lead to physical and emotional stress, while healthy relationships can improve your quality of life. I am committed to helping others change there lives by exploring personal strengths, and rediscovering hope. I believe in empowering people to achieve personal, professional, and spiritual growth in their lives to experience their best life now.
