About My Clients
I enjoy working with clients who are open and honest with me and ready to develop a trusting relationship w - even if they have found others to not be trusting, open and honest. I believe that everyone needs and benefits from an independent, objective person like me to talk to and receive counseling and support. I offer my clients options and ideas and tasks to help improve their lives. If you decide to become my client then I look forward to becoming a new member of your support system!
My Background and Approach
I'm an experienced and empathetic practitioner who doesn't judge others. I enjoy helping people become more mindful and deciding to optimistically make the important decisions that will improve their mental health and well-being. I use a client-centered, solution-focused approach in my therapeutic interactions. I am qualified to prescribe medication however I chose at this time to not do so, and to only provide non-medical counseling via TherapyDen. I have earned a Bachelor of Social Work, a Master of Social Work, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Social Welfare. I have over 30 years of experience working in various city, county, state and private social service organizations. I have expertise in various areas such as ethnic diversity, cultural competence, caregiving, child custody issues, and human behavior across the life-span. I congratulate you for reaching out for help from a licensed professionals instead of trying to manage your problems on your own...
