More about me
Welcome to my profile and to the first step toward your reinvention. I'm here to help you make your desires become a reality; whatever that means for you. Whether you crave a healthier outlook, a more ambitious lifestyle, a calmer home environment, a more supportive social network, a fulfilling career, a definitive sense of self, or simply, a better night's sleep, I can help guide you there.
I am a motivated, published and clinically-minded LCSW with rigorous experience in acute psychiatry, substance dependence, intimate partner issues, behavioral health evaluative services, parenting and child/family work who provides therapy services in the hospital setting, and previously, in the Department of Veteran's Affairs, and I'm seeking new client prospects who are committed to self-betterment.
I had the privilege of training at the Beck Institute in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a modality that is evidenced-based for the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders, as well as, anger issues, chronic pain, poor body image, low self-esteem, troubled sleep, managing relationship stress, coping with physical illness and more. I utilize other modalities, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Image Rehearsal Therapy, Family Based Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy and others, depending on the desires of each client.
I set goals with my clients and reach them, act as a believer when they can't or won't believe in themselves and provide structured out-of-session assignments to achieve solid, long-lasting and generalizable results.
One day soon, you won't need me but in the meantime, lets get to work!

About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
