Culturally Competent Compassionate Counseling, LCSW, PLLC

My practice “Culturally Competent Compassionate Counseling” seeks to respect, encourage and support the pursuit of personal growth and fulfillment of all individuals, regardless of age, race, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. Life is trying in the best of times. My job as your therapist is to listen without judgment, support your pursuit of your self identified goals and gently challenge you to live your best life.

Some of my areas of expertise is working with individuals and families impacted by a diagnosis of ASD, learning difficulties, school performance issues, mental illness and family dynamics. I also treat individuals dealing with identity, eating and socialization issues.

I treat adolescents, teens, young adults and adults. It is also my belief that individuals often cannot improve without family involvement. Family dynamics and education is critical in supporting the efforts of those dealing with a mental illness or handicap of any kind. In addition to individual and family treatment, I also work with couples to ensure they have the information that can help them learn to support and not undermine the progress of their loved ones. Often the challenges of having a child or family member with a special need can devastate a marriage and a family.
