About Me

I’m Ophelia and I’m excited you have found my page. I love working with young adults and adults to find their passion in life, remove the blocks that prevent them from being their most awesome self and learn to live a life they've envisioned. Over the course of my professional career, I have acquired significant clinical experience with individuals and groups in the following areas:

• Christian Counseling
• Communication skills
• Depression and Bipolar Disorder
• Immigration and Adjustment Distress
• Anxiety Disorders
• Acculturation Issues
• Conflict Resolution
• Family and Relationship Issues
• Anger and Stress Management
• Trauma and Abuse
• Group Psychotherapy
• Chronic Mental Illness
• Couple’s Conflict
• Self-image and Self-Esteem Issues
• Personality Disorders

I utilize a variety of techniques, including dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, emotionally focused couples therapy, crisis intervention, stress management, assertiveness training, mood management, anxiety reduction, empowerment and work/life balance. I firmly believe that even the most precious of all gems needs to be chiseled and faceted to attain its best shine.


I am excited about your decision to work to be the whole person you were created to be!

Ophelia is GREAT - she is very thoughtful, receptive, & her approach is one that provides comfort during difficult discussions. She's also continuously teaching us different techniques & providing tools that I believe will be helpful for us outside of these counseling sessions as well. Highly recommend.

Ophelia is very skilled at what she does just after the first session I felt I was in safe hands.

Ophelia is amazing. She's knowledgeable, helpful, and a wonderful therapist. She's done wonders for us as a couple and individually. I couldn't be happier that we were paired with her as our therapist. She knows how to ask questions to get us to think and look inside ourselves. I appreciate every moment of our therapy.
