I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC), Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS), Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), Certified Clinical Supervisor (CCS) and a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). I have a PhD in Human Services, with a concentration in Disaster, Crisis, and Intervention. I have over 20 years of experience in mental health and substance abuse counseling. I have been in the mental health and substance abuse field since 1998 and worked as a licensed private practitioner since 2001. Most of my counseling approach is based on Motivational Enhancement Techniques (MET), Client Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Family Systems theories. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques to help individuals who are dealing with traumatic experiences.
I have experience working with chemically dependent families, especially providing couples therapy to help people in a relationship where one partner has substance use disorder. My couple therapy sessions will create a safe and nonjudgmental environment where partners can express their emotions and frustrations, realize, and overcome their shortcomings and rebuild trust.
I would like to assure you that my services will be rendered in a professional manner, consistent with accepted ethical standards of this noble profession. It is important to learn how to intervene, what and when to say anything to ensure effective communication to help and motivate individuals struggling with substance use disorders to quit and maintain complete abstinence, without the consequences of making them angry and trigger cravings and usage.
I look forward to working with you.
