Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
First and foremost, I am a client centered psychotherapist. Besides being an experienced licensed psychotherapist, I am a female veteran primarily focused on assisting the military veteran who have served or is currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. With my past experience in the military and my clinical experience assisting clients with resolving issues of PTSD, Depression, and Sexual assault and molestation, I am well suited to be empathetic and supportive to the military veteran and all clients who have experienced trauma in their lives. I have worked the past six years at Department of Mental Health contracted agencies where I was highly trained to work with adults, couples, families, teens, and children. For the past three years, in private practice assisting clients from all walks of life reduce and or resolve their impairments, be it trauma, depression, anxiety, or grief.

About My Practice

Office Hours
I am currently available Monday-Friday from 9:30am-6:00pm and on Saturday from 9:00am-1pm. Special appts. by request.
Services
I offer client centered assistance to help clients reduce and/or resolve personal issues that are causing blockages to a successful and happy life. I'm experienced using the following modalities: Psychodynamic, eclectic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, spiritual psychology, and evidenced based practices such as, Trauma Focus, seeking safety and Crisis Intervention. My practice is unique because I am a clinically trained female veteran eager to serve my fellow veterans. My focus is working with either Urban or Military traumas, i.e., domestic violence, military sexual trauma, war related PTSD. Having been in the private sector for many years, I am also able to assist the military man or woman with re-integrating back into her community.
