I believe receiving counseling is the ultimate act of humility. In therapy, a person allows themselves to be vulnerable and expose their lifelong conundrums that have weighed them down for years.
I believe that counseling is an act of service and should not be taken lightly. I provide a safe space for you to release the burdens of your everyday life. In my approach to treatment I seek to find the core disturbance that resonates throughout the individuals life. I help each individual to recognize their issues and feel the emotions that have been suppressed as a result of the disturbance, then we work to heal the old wounds that have been keeping the person stuck physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
My new passion is to find people who self medicate their mental health issues with cannabis, a legal means to address their use of cannabis, especially individuals on probation. My mission is through mental health care legitimize the use of cannabis through assessing and diagnosing self-medicators and legitimizing their use by facilitating the acquisition of a medical cannabis card . This will introduce a targeted holistic means to consider addressing mental health and physical health issues with the medicinal cannabis. As a clinician it is my hope that as some people get assessed they would decide to get treatment as well.
