My Approach to Helping

I worked as a social worker in Child Welfare for 21 years helping families and children work through issues of abuse and neglect to improve their relationships.  Prior to that I worked doing couples and individual counseling.  Earlier in my career, I also taught elementary school and worked in a group home.  

 I believe in using therapy to empower individuals to find mental and emotional well-being and increased quality of life.  I am a lifelong learned who loves to research the newest trends in mental and emotional well-being and utilize techniques to help strengthen families, couples, and individuals.

 

“Taking a step today will help you lead a better tomorrow.”

I am a Telehealth Provider

I know that it can be hard to fit appointments into your daily life. Leaving home when you are managing mental health symptoms, or even just finding time to commute regularly to an in-person appointment can be difficult. Telehealth is the ability to provide mental health care services from a distance through technology

A Few Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
  • Marital/Couples Counseling: This type of therapy helps a couple that is struggling with aspects of their relationship. This type of therapy can also be used to help spouses and partners understand why their loved one has a mental disorder, what changes in communication and behaviors can help, and what they can do to cope.
  • Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
  • Family Counseling: Because family is a key part of the team that helps people with mental illness get better, it is sometimes helpful for family members to understand what their loved one is going through, how they themselves can cope, and what they can do to help.
  • Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers, or other acquaintances.
  • Coaching: 
  • Pastoral Counseling
  • Group Counseling: 
  • Social Work: 
  • Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

An accurate diagnosis and an age-appropriate treatment program is crucial when one is suffering from mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorder. I offer services for:

  • Teens (12+)
  • Adults (18-55)
  • Elders (56-100+)

Some Client Concerns I Treat​

Mental health crises range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to traumatic mental health crisis or serious long-term conditions.

Industries & Communities Serves

Community can be defined in many ways, but when simplified down to its most important element, community is all about connection. Community is not just an entity or a group of people, it’s a feeling. It’s feeling connected to others, feeling accepted for who you are and feeling supported.

We’re social beings, and we are not meant to live in isolation. Community is critical for us to thrive, especially for someone with mental illness who is already experiencing the common symptoms of loneliness and isolation. Below are some of the communities I work with to help provide a sense of belonging, support, and purpose.

  • Education
  • Entertainment Industry
  • First Responder/Medical
  • Professionals
  • Military/Law Enforcement
  • Professional Sports
  • Self-Employed and Freelance Professionals

Facility Accessibility

Morgan Health Centers and its Affiliates are outpatient centers and NOT an emergency care facility. In case of an emergency please contact a primary care physician or the local emergency room, police or 911.

Those with disabilities often face major barriers getting the health care services they need. Research shows that, compared to people with out disabilities, people with disabilities are less likely to receive comprehensive preventative care. Improving physical access to health care services is essential to achieving health equity. 

We recognize the needs of patients with disabilities, and make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and accommodate these patients.
