I am a licensed psychologist in Las Vegas, Nevada. My background includes extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy. I help my clients overcome emotional and mental obstacles and teach them how to succeed. I provide counseling in a comfortable and supportive setting, tailored to the unique needs and goals of each client.
From my years in the field, I believe anyone can take control of their life with enough knowledge, coping skills, and support. I help my clients learn to handle the challenges they are facing, and guide them towards a better life.
My practice focuses on the following areas:
Depression: Setbacks are a part of life at times. Significant and prolonged setbacks, however, can often be a cause of depression. Others can include emotional isolation, a history of trauma, and negative thinking – just to name a few. I help my clients understand why they are depressed, how to cope with depression and get their lives back on track.
Anxiety: Although it is unpleasant, anxiety can sometimes be a healthy emotion to alert us to potential danger. Signs of unhealthy anxiety include avoiding or dreading social situations, panic attacks, and chronic feelings of tension. I show my clients how to overcome anxiety by providing them support and teaching them effective coping skills.
Stress: As the pace of life continues to increase, it can be difficult to keep up at times. The demands of work, parenting, health issues, and economic uncertainty are just some of the ways that stress can become overwhelming. I help my clients understand how to handle stress and to make it work for them, not against them.
Relationships: One of the greatest joys in life can be relationships with family, friends, and romantic partners. Relationship problems, however, can be a significant source of emotional distress. Relationship counseling can help couples identify and overcome the issues between them, and family counseling can help promote healthy family relationships. . For others, the lack of relationships is the problem. I teach such clients how to make friends and how to date so that they can experience more success in this part of life.
Attention Deficit Disorder: Procrastination, forgetfulness, distractibility, and restlessness – we all have these symptoms at times. Some people, however, have significantly more problems in these area to the extent that the have Attention Deficit Disorder. I provide education and support regarding ADD symptoms, and options for ADD treatment.
Anger Management: Anger is part of the range of human emotions. When handled constructively, it can create energy for making positive changes in our lives. But when our anger takes charge of us - or when we have trouble coping with it - it can cause many problems in our lives and relationships. Fortunately, there are many effective anger management techniques that can help us to contain such feelings.
Spirituality: Spiritual issues can be a significant source of distress for some people. In contrast, a healthy spiritual life help one cope with the challenges of everyday life. I provide Christian counseling for clients of faith who want to integrate spirituality and personal growth.
