I am a licensed mental health counselor that has been practicing individual and group therapy in a variety of settings since 2005. I have provided counseling and therapy services in community mental health, substance abuse (rehab/detox) facilities, public schools, psychiatric hospitals and in correctional environments. I specialize in chronic mental illness, mood disorders including Major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques, based on the needs of those I counsel. Some of the techniques I use includes EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, and some components of dialectical behavior therapy.
