Licensed Professional Counselor
At times life presents itself with challenges that make us feel powerless. I believe in people’s ability to control their thoughts and emotions, and to overcome situations that are difficult. I believe in people’s capacity of change, striving for growth as a continuum. People can learn from their experiences but are not determined by them. I will provide the support you need to rewrite your personal story. I provide traditional talk therapy, activity therapy, and play therapy, in both English and Spanish. In addition to holding to be licensed as a psychologist in Columbia I also hold advanced training in mindfulness.
The counseling approach I use is always personalized to the the individual’s needs. In my work with children and adults, I have emphasized the importance of understanding the brain as an ever-changing muscle, ready for new connections improving behaviors.
I have worked in schools and clinics with children, adolescents and adults with various emotional and behavioral challenges including: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, ODD,Adjustment Issues Related to Divorce or Loss, Peer Problems, Self-Esteem, Social Skills Challenges and Life Transitions.
