Mental Illness

This is the area in which I have the most experience. Past clients include teens with mental illness, families who are homeless and also are coping with mental illness, and adults with severe and persistent mental illness.  I’ve worked with individuals, including those with Major Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Generalized Anxiety Disorders.  Some of these individuals also had personality disorders.

I am willing to work with individuals who utilize medications for their mental illness but cannot prescribe medications myself. However, I will work with your prescribing doctor to help monitor progress.  Mental illness can be debilitating; however, many people can work towards leading healthy productive lives despite having mental illness.

My counseling techniques include talk therapy, solution focused therapy, problem solving techniques, cognitive behavioral techniques, relaxation techniques, as well as art therapy, creative writing, and journaling.
