I am a Licenses Professional Counselor and a Certified Anger Management Specialist who has been in the Behavioral Health field for over 19 years. I chose to pursue a career in the Behavioral Health Field as a result of my need for professional counseling during a challenging period in my own life, at time when my Christian connections were ineffective in helping me deal with said challenges. I do not consider myself to be a "Christian Counselor, rather, I consider myself a Christian who happens to be a Counselor.
I believe in God the Father, and Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and try to live my life accordingly. This being the case, I welcome those clients who are not offended or afraid to offer a prayer before a session and who are comfortable with the use of Biblical principles being utilized in the clinical environment.
My counseling style is personable and interactive. I believe in people's abilities to bring about positive change in their lives if provided with the right support and guidance at crucial intervals in their lives.
Also experienced in:
Addictions , Relationship issues , Anger management , Self-esteem , Coping with life changes , Compassion fatigue , and Stress.
My approach to counseling includes the use of a variety of therapeutic modalities, based of the Client's needs and their capacity to engage in the treatment process. Some of these modalities includes, but is not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy, all of which I have utilized in providing treatment for the following challenges: Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Adult onset ADHD, and Bi-Polar. etc.
I look forward to utilizing my educational skills and years of experience to help bring about positive change in the lives of individuals I am privileged to serve.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!.
