As a Licensed Clinical Therapist I have worked for approximately 20 years with a diverse population. I have worked with adults, couples, families, elderly, children and teenagers. I specialize in issues pertaining to adults such as relationship issues, mild to moderate depression, anger, trauma, anxiety and lack of focus and self-esteem. I also specialize in issues pertaining to adolescents and children such as child anxiety, depression, social issues and low self-esteem. I realize that it is very important to be sensitive and supportive to people’s needs as well as their preferences.

I am a strong believer that people can benefit from counseling services by receiving the help and support they need. I believe every individual is unique and different therefore I have different techniques, methods and tools I use to better assist the individual. Thus, empowering and strengthening individuals and families and improving their overall well being and the quality of their lives.
