Clientele: I provide consultation and counseling services to adults. The issues addressed include, but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, domestic violence, addiction, spirituality, family of origin issues, death /dying, bereavement, and anger difficulties. Services offered: I provide Individual, Couples, Family, and Group Therapy. Talk therapy is used in individual and group sessions. Some of the counseling models and techniques that I draw from are: Internal Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, and Dialectical-Behavior Therapy. Expressive Arts Therapy is utilized at times to help the client access and communicate emotion. The art modalities used may include drawing, writing, clay, movement, and/or collage. Philosophy: There are many different life events that may bring one to counseling such as a divorce, illness, stress of daily living, or depression. In counseling sessions, I provide a safe, confidential environment for the client to explore the issues at hand. I have a holistic approach to counseling that considers all aspects of the person: mind, body, and spirit. In exploring these areas one can find healing and growth, and move forward with life’s goals. I abide by the Code of Ethics for Licensed Professional Counselors. 1
