I have many years experience working with adults and children suffering from depression, anxiety, OCD, anger issues, trauma, and abuse. I have also worked in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. After my graduate studies, my primary focus and training was working with children suffering from ADHD, ODD, depression, and anxiety. I used behavioral management coupled with parenting strategies to improve the overall parent/child relationship. I gained incredible knowledge and insight regarding chronic pain as well as grief and loss while working with the elderly population through home health care and hospice.In our first session, I will conduct a psychosocial assessment to help me gain insight into your areas of concerns and we will create a personalized treatment plan together. I utilize primarily cognitive behavioral interventions, which focuses on changing negative thinking, which in turn will change negative behaviors.I use a well-rounded approach to tailor my clients’ goals to help them achieve success and personal growth. Each of my clients are unique individuals and I pay close attention to where each one is in the healing process, while providing support and understanding in a non judgmental way.
