I believe that every person, no matter their circumstances or struggles, has a valiant mind. Therefore, I believe that each of my clients are the experts of their own life and that my job is to meet each client wherever they currently are on their journey and to walk alongside them in order to help facilitate growth and change. In 2004, I graduated from Chatham University with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and have since gained extensive experience in the treatment of adult and childhood psychological and neurobehavioral disorders. My sessions predominantly use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, where I help my clients to understand how their thoughts affect their feelings and behaviors. I also use other psychotherapy techniques that provide comprehensive perspectives to my clients and enhance mind, body such as positive psychology, existentialist philosophy, and mindfulness meditation. My goal is to help my clients broaden their awareness, challenge problematic patterns, learn healthy coping skills, live mindfully and confidently, and seek their unique version of joy. Above all, I am committed to creating therapeutic relationships that are built on trust, respect, transparency, empathy, honesty, and equality, and I always counsel from a nonjudgmental place of understanding and compassion.

Valiant Minds Counseling, LLC Practice Description
I specialize in working with diverse individuals, especially individuals and families who are navigating through challenges and who are experiencing anxiety and stress, relationship challenges, low self-esteem, obsessive negative thoughts, and depression. I also specialize in working with individuals and their families who have neurological differences, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism. Most clients with attention deficit disorders know that their struggles go beyond simple problems with concentration. At Valiant Minds we provide a warm and understanding environment to help individuals learn skills to improve their everyday lives. I believe therapy needs to be conversation-tailored to meet your specific needs. Collaboration is key and my goal is to help my clients learn skills and strategies to increase coping and find peace. Therefore, I aim to truly get to know and understand my clients in meaningful ways so that I can uniquely tailor therapy sessions to meet each client's needs and goals.
