Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.
Specialties: Child, Teen/Adolescent, Adult, Individual, Family Therapy, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and Trauma, Alcohol abuse, Anger management, Emotional and Behavioral Issues, ADHD, Self-Esteem, Coping Skills, Family Conflict, Relationship Issues, Oppositional Defiance, Impulse Control, Parenting Issues, Spirituality

No matter what difficulties we all face, what pain we go through, or what our age group and background is, we all experience a longing for acceptance and connection, to feel empowered and have a meaningful life (yes, even our kiddos!). If you are searching for assistance, I believe that you are aware of this longing and understand that there is something you can do about it! I believe the best place to start the process toward well-being is accepting where we are in the here and now, while also learning to listen to our longings of where we want to be. I view my role as a counselor to foster an accepting and grace-filled environment while empowering individuals of all ages and families to take steps toward healing and growth.

Based on your specific needs and personality, I take a holistic approach drawing from various evidence-based therapeutic approaches, recognizing that all people are individuals and all difficulties are unique. I draw from the following theories and interventions: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)/Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Play Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Reality Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Narrative Therapy, and Existential Therapy.
