Psychosocial Assessment
A psychosocial assessment is given to individuals to evaluate their biological background that completely assesses both their paternal and maternal make-up. This assessment not only evaluates the individual consumer’s mental and/or behavioral needs, but it also assesses the care-givers positive or negative role in the nurturing of the consumers growth. Psychosocial assessments can be used as beginning tools to assist in creating treatment plans and means of successful application of treatment. This form of an assessment is geared towards description of the presenting issues and the needs of treatment, while utilizing all factors of a consumers surrounding to apply treatment.
Individual Counseling
Individual therapy—also known as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or counseling—is a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. Therapy can help people confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, and it can also increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace. Many people find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware, and they may pursue ongoing psychotherapy as a means of self-growth and self-actualization.
Children, Marriage and Family Counseling
I work effectively with couples and families experiencing a wide variety of issues and problems.  Family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family, such as major life transitions or mental health conditions. It may be used as the primary mode of treatment or as a complementary approach.

Marriage and family therapy is:
• brief
• solution-focused

• designed with the “end in mind.”
