Welcome to counseling. I am a Resident in Counseling, supervised by Sharon Watson LPC, LMFT, LSATP, NCC, ACS and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC). I provide individual and group therapy and I’m happy to include family or loved ones if helpful to you. Some of the supportive therapeutic techniques I use are cognitive-behavioral, narrative, strengths-based approaches, sometimes using expressive therapies that empower people in increasing their self-awareness of their own abilities to improve their lives. I can help guide you in this process.
My experience has been in both mental health and substance abuse treatment as a therapist in community-based programs and in inpatient and outpatient facilities. I have worked with referrals from employers, courts, ASAP, hospitals, treatment centers, as well as self-referrals. Each of these situations has given me invaluable insight in recognizing how much courage and strength it takes to confront your issues. As your therapist, I will be committed to helping you achieve lasting, realistic, and sustainable changes in their life.
