Counseling, to me, believes that a well-trained therapist is one who is constantly learning. As such, I obtained both a Masters and a PhD in Marriage & Family Therapy, dual licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), as well as numerous specialty licenses. Self Worth Therapy is my speciality.
I am an EFT (Emotional Focus Therapy) trained therapist who teaches Self Worth Therapy. For EFT to work, we must focus on the present to makes changes in the here and now. As I observe the dynamics in your nature or relationships, I will guide you to observing your emotions in the present moment.
EFT understands that the foundations of our identity are based on our concept of emotions. In other words, emotions are key to our identity. EFT provides emotional bonding and resolve for my clients.
I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples, and families as well as specializations in counseling military clients and families.
Additionally, I am licensed to offer virtual or technology-based therapy for online, phone, or email therapy when office visits are not possible or inconvenient.
