About Me

I have been working in the mental health field for 4 years. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology. I chose a career in mental health to assist others in maintaining a mentally healthy lifestyle. I have worked with couples who struggle with communication and understanding their mate. My counseling style is warm and engaging. My treatment approach is that of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). However, every couple/client is different; therefore, each treatment plan is tailored to accommodate the individual client's needs. I believe that it is important for couples/individuals to understand the root of their issues and understand methods to recognize triggers, provide coping strategies, and allow them to see how their perspectives shape their view of the world. When changing their view, they positively change their behaviors.

Whether you seek change for a healthier, happier life or need a non-judgmental party, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Reviews

Written by M.A. on Feb 17, 2021 after counseling with Octavia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Octavia has been very patient and approachable in the two sessions we’ve had so far. Since my wife and I have very different personalities, she listens to both perspectives and and pertinent questions to get us to see our partner’s viewpoint. I’m encouraged that we’ll make progress.
