Community-Based Therapy Services
I am a mental health practitioner working towards licensure. I enjoy working with people of all ages and cultures. I have experience working in areas such as anxiety disorders, depression, adjustment issues, grief, history of abuse, trauma, self-harm, and self-esteem issues.
Many people come to counseling because they are facing a variety of concerns in their daily lives. I utilize a combination of person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy. While using a person-centered approach I will be warm, genuine, and understanding to help the client achieve self-actualization and growth. I will also utilize cognitive behavior therapy to help clients realize their negative thinking patterns and develop alternative ways of thinking to alleviate their stress. While working with clients I want to assist them in reaching the goals they have placed to help them through the issues they are facing.
I enjoy reading, exercising, watching Netflix, and puzzles.
To expand and improve our care options for clients, ACP offers Telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Telehealth uses phone or video conferencing to connect you with highly qualified and experienced providers in real-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. Before your telehealth appointment, you will receive details for how you will connect with your provider. If you will be connecting via phone, the provider will plan to call you at your scheduled appointment time. Please be ready to take the call and also check that your phone allows calls from blocked numbers (accessible within your phone settings). If you will be connecting via video conference, your provider will email you an invite to join the appointment. Please call our office to learn more about ACP’s telehealth services and to schedule an appointment.
