I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) who works with children, teens and adults with a history of trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, life transitions and adjustment challenges.
I provide services in individual and group settings; I work with clients that speak English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
I believe every person is unique and deserving of the best that life has to offer. My approach to counseling is to tailored to my client’s background and needs. I draw from different Evidence Based Practices order to best fit the needs of my clients, meeting them where they are.
Throughout my career, I have work with individual clients, groups, and families of many distinct social, religious, cultural and economic backgrounds. I had the pleasure to work with clients in inpatient and outpatient settings, clients with chemical dependency challenges, depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions and adjustment challenges.
I have been trained and incorporate numerous Evidenced Based Practices into my work. Some of them include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focus Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), and Acceptance Cognitive Therapy (ACT).
