Practice Information

Therapy is a chance for growth, a chance for happiness, a chance for a life worth living.

I believe in the rights and dignity of human beings, that all people have meaning and purpose, and that no individual is without value regardless of who you are or where you've been. I believe these principles are at the heart of every effective clinical interaction. I believe that each individual has purpose, meaning, and objective value. People are not born as merely empty vessels upon which a society or government grants rights and value to. Instead, simply by virtue of being a human being, you have inherent value, purpose, and meaning. This means as you're counselor I will treat you with dignity, respect, and with genuine concern for your well-being. Self-awareness is perhaps one of the best tools you can use to avoid imposing your values on clients.

A staggering number of people with mental health conditions report that their needs are not being met. Assessments performed via telehealth lead to benefits outcomes that are comparable to in-person treatment. A growing number of controlled trials are providing more insight into the potential of telepsychiatry to deliver quality care while lowering costs. The greatest reductions in cost are associated with diminished travel time, better coordination of care, and early intervention.
