My career began working in the adolescent residential substance use disorders, involved in gangs, and then began working in outpatient and community services board settings. I have volunteer experience in prisons, jails and humanitarian venues like hurricane relief, as well as working in secured environments and with medication assisted treatment. I have over 24 years experience in the field of mental health, substance use & Co-occurring disorders within CSB, outpatient, residential, inpatient, locked facilities & private practice. I possess the skills, knowledge & abilities regarding the development, growth & managing substance use treatment facilities & programs.

My primary theoretical approaches are Cognitive Behavioral, Reality (Choice), Motivational Interviewing (Enhancement), Solution Focused. I utilize the evidenced based approaches from the scientific training, yet, my base and strength of therapy, come from a faith based model, which means, the approach is from the inside, out. My approach is one of compassion, empathy, person-centered, genuine and to be upfront to find where you want to go, and how I may walk with you to get you there.
I look forward to you reaching out to connect with me, through BetterHelp communications, to get started on your healing process.
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.
