Practice Information
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.
 Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)

Therapeutic approach: The method and approaches would depend on the client and their needs, but I usually draw most from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Informed, Strengths-Based, Motivational Interviewing, Existential therapy, Solution Focused, Person-Centered, and spirituality, and mindfulness. I believe that the mind, body, and spirit are connected and it is important to nourish all three.

I believe in helping and guiding people to emotional stability and empowerment, self determination,, teaching coping skills for stress and negative thoughts and emotions, start the healing process from trauma and abuse, and their ability to take control of their lives. Connecting with clients, gaining trust, developing a genuine therapeutic relationship with clients, providing empathy are the foundations of my counseling. I believe in the therapy process and hope clients will find the strength and potential they already had all along.
