As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Drug & Alcohol Counselor (CADC-I), I can provide thorough mental health and substance abuse assessments. These are helpful in determining accurate diagnoses, appropriate referrals to doctors, medical providers, and other issue-specific treatment providers, and providing us with the information necessary to create a treatment plan that is in line with the changes you are seeking from counseling. While assessments generally take more time and cost more money, they also give a clearer picture of the issues clients are facing, making it easier to identify potential solutions.
I also utilize tools for individuals and couples, such as the PREPARE/ENRICH and 16PF, that help provide guidance and insight as to potential issues that may be affecting the current problem. These tools are research-based, scientifically proven, and have been widely accepted in the counseling field.
Children, teens, and adults have many important issues they would like to work on or overcome. Sometimes these issues are specific to gender, age, career, or other variables. My training includes core Individual Counseling coursework, and my experience in community mental health have given me the opportunity to help a wide range of people and life problems.
So often couples come into my office looking for a last-ditch effort for their relationship before calling it quits. While this presents a challenge in counseling, it’s never too late. I believe counseling can also be a helpful proactive process that makes good relationships better and great relationships fantastic. If you are struggling with a relationship, whether it’s a spouse, a family member, co-worker, or a friend, I want to help resolve the issues you’re facing and provide you with tools to prevent them from coming up again in the future.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “A nation is only as strong as the homes it is made of.” My desire is to help families achieve their full potential so that they can provide safety, growth, and love for all members involved. I believes that families are the place to practice and prepare for life. By helping families overcome areas of disagreement and improve relationships within the family, I believe that each individual becomes more capable of excelling in life and that the family provides the comfort and joy that nobody else in life can.
