I believe it is important for all of us to have a positive support system that allows us to express our thoughts, emotions, and provide skills and techniques to cope with daily life stressors and triggers.
My professional experience includes being a clinician serving youth, adults, and families in both the outpatient and inpatient therapy settings, working at Juvenile Hall, Community Emergency Response Team, Integrated Forensics Team and outpatient therapy. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals of diverse backgrounds, ethnicity, spiritual philosophy, and culture.
I have worked with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, loss & grief, life changes. My goal as a psychologist is to find the best resources, services and tools for each client through building a non-judgmental, caring supportive therapeutic relationship that promotes both physical, mental, and emotional healthy living.
Therapy is an opportunity for members to look at problems from different perspectives and is an excellent tool that allows clients to discuss stressors and problems in a safe and private setting. It is important the client and therapist work as a team to discuss treatment plan options that will provide members with the skills necessary to learn how to react differently towards their problems. During therapy, I encourage clients to speak about their issues to help them find the answers on their own and without judgment.
