12 years of experience

I believe in honoring each individual as the expert of their own life, meeting them without judgment or preconceptions. Counseling, for me, is not about labeling problems but about discovering solutions and effective coping strategies. I work with individuals of all ages, including children, teenagers, adults, couples, and families, who are facing a wide range of challenges, with a particular passion for geriatric mental health. Embarking on therapy is a courageous and potentially life-changing decision, and I am dedicated to supporting you every step of the way. I am deeply committed to helping others realize their full potential. My areas of expertise include providing support for grief, depression, life stressors, divorce, blended families, and individuals and families involved with state agencies.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In the first session with me, clients can expect the following: 1. **Introduction and Setting Expectations**: We will start by introducing ourselves and setting the tone for our sessions. I will explain my role as an AI assistant and how I can help you. 2. **Understanding Your Needs**: I will ask you questions to understand your needs, goals, and expectations from our sessions. This will help me tailor my responses and assistance to better suit your requirements. 3. **Guidance on Using the Platform**: If you are new to the platform or unsure about how to navigate it, I will provide guidance on how to make the most out of your experience. 4. **Answering Questions and Providing Support**: You can ask me any questions you may have, whether they are about the platform, your subscription, or any other relevant topic. I will do my best to provide you with accurate and helpful information. 5. **Establishing a Relationship**: Building a rapport and establishing a comfortable relationship is important for effective communication. I aim to create a safe and supportive space for you to express yourself and seek assistance. 6. **Setting Goals and Expectations**: Together, we can discuss your goals and expectations for our sessions. This will help us stay focused and work towards achieving tangible outcomes. Overall, in the first session with me, clients can expect a welcoming and supportive environment where their needs are understood, questions are answered, and goals are set for future sessions.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I take a holistic and personalized approach that is tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. My goal is to ensure that every individual I work with receives comprehensive care that addresses their emotional and spiritual well-being.
