Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in working with people living with HIV/AIDS, gay/lesbian issues, addictive behaviors (ie sexual addiction and substance addiction) and mood disorders (ie depression/anxiety/bipolar).

I assist clients in healing from emotional pain and finding meaning in their lives. I work with my clients to identify the feelings and experiences that may contribute to their current situation. I also help clients develop coping skills to improve their outlook and prepare them to live well.

I use a variety of humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral techniques, and I specialize in working with individual adults.

I have experience in working with a variety of issues, including addiction, relationship issues, trauma (physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect) self esteem issues, identity issues, gay and lesbian issues, HIV related issues, anxiety and depression.
