Mental Health Practitioner, Counselor, Pain Management and Weight Loss Coach, Couples Counseling, Group Therapy. Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD specialist.
I support children and adults in reducing symptoms related to: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, and Substance Abuse that sometimes feel unbearable to live with.
For example, treatment plans might surround topics like: getting off an antidepressant medication, stopping a self sabotaging behavior, or losing weight. I make a treatment plan for you based off your want to achieve that goal and find the emotional aspects involved, and you are then coached and supported to accomplishing your goal and processing the change fully.
I also provide existentially framed psychotherapy and work with aspects of the unconscious, the shadow self, and dreams in therapy sessions-which is different from coaching or counseling, as it takes on a more emotional and symbolic uncovering of the root causes of where you are getting stuck or suffering.
Groups that are forming and available to join surround the topics of:
Chronic Pain and Medical Disabilities
Substance Use Harm Reduction
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
If you would like a psychological assessment for diagnostic purposes for insurance or funding, I will be available while working under supervision finishing PhD requirements needed to perform the battery of testing. Specializations in diagnosis include: Childhood Developmental Disorders, Autism, IQ Testing, Reading & Mathematics Disorders, ADHD, Mood and Personality Disorders, Addiction and Substance Abuse, all DSM-IV.

Nearly 1 in 25 adults in the US live with a serious mental illness, according to NAMI . Yet, stigma surrounding mental illness can make managing such conditions in the workplace hard, adding even more stress to an already stressful situation. In this podcast, APA CEO Arthur C. Evans, Jr., PhD explains why creating work environments that support employees with mental illness is not only the right thing to do but is also good for business.
APA called on President Trump today to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, noting that ending it would break up families and derail many young immigrants’ chances for a quality education and future. Read the full statement here

Every young girl should hear P!nk's powerful message to her daughter.
Nobody can dispute that the mind and the body are connected; however, the U.S. health care system has long treated them as separate—resulting in many people with acute mental illnesses getting help.

"But the last decade has shown that with a little encouragement, many can easily become excessively lustful about homeownership and wealth, to the detriment of our economy and society. That’s the wrong way to go. Instead, we need to bring back the American Dream of a just society, where everyone has an opportunity to reach “the fullest stature of which they are innately capable.”
