My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my clients imagining the life they want, developing insight about the choices in life and then establish a plan of action to achieve their goals. Changes that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. As a psychotherapist, I like to use different therapy approaches with different clients to treat mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression, and behavioral disorders. I work with clients across the age span. I commonly use a combination of rational emotive behavior therapy and cognitive behavior therapy. With REBT (rational emotive behavior therapy) a client’s deep-seated beliefs and notions can be uprooted, life and the world seen in a new light, and helped to abandon toxic thoughts and impressions and is enabled to accept oneself unconditionally. The premise with CBT (cognitive behavior therapy) places an emphasis on identifying self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors and changing them into more positive behaviors. I am a marriage and family therapist with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University and advanced graduate study and training at the doctoral level in Clinical Psychology at Azusa Pacific University. I provide clinical oversight, supervision and training of masters-level interns working toward becoming a therapist. I provide my clients and interns with a safe environment to grow and become their best possible selves. I have experience teaching undergraduate and graduate students in general and social psychology , marriage and family, and community mental health at university and community college level. I established an internship program in partnership with four universities for practicum students at residential treatment settings for youth in foster care/juvenile probation systems.
