About Me

Hello and welcome to betterhelp.
I know this is a big step. Reaching out for help and support I have worked in the substance abuse field since 1986. I am a licensed alcohol and drug counselor and have been since 1997. I received my Certified Clinical Supervisors certificate in 2005. I graduated from Springfield College with my Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2008. I am a licensed mental health counselor since 2010. I work with individuals, couples and families. I can conduct a bio- psychosocial assessment utilizing a variety of assessment tools. I meet the client where they are at. I utilize client centered therapy to help the clients identify their strengths by utilizing motivation interview and cognitive behavioral therapy. I work effectively with clients who suffer with symptoms of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, PTSD and other mental health issues. I have experience with working with adolescence, adults and the elderly. I help clients see that change is possible.At times life can be difficult, challenging and unpredictable. These factors influence our wellbeing, as well as the way we react to our circumstances. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process between a client and his or her therapist. As your therapist I will assist you in exploring personal, relational, mental health, drug or alcohol problems or any other issues that might be impacting your life. Together, we will address your individual needs and establish goals that promote growth and healing. I will provide a confidential place for disclosure, diagnostic and educational material, a treatment plan, and crisis intervention or referral services as needed. The duration of psychotherapy varies, depending on the client’s history, present circumstances, issues explored during treatment, and the mutually established goals for treatment. My motto is Empowering people. Let me help empower you.
I look forward to working with you through betterhelp. You have taken the first step by reaching out. Now let your journey begin.
