Hello, I’m Dr. CJ and I’m glad you’re considering counseling! Whether you are new to therapy or just online counseling in general, I’m here to assist you in your time of need. I have 7 years of counseling experience and look forward to getting to know you better.
My highest degree is a Doctorate of Philosophy in Rehabilitation Counseling and Administration. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC # 9531) and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC # 00272838).
I have experience providing services for adults and adolescents, ages 13 to 73, from many culturally diverse backgrounds. I am experienced in offering individual, group, and couples counseling activities using a multisystemic approach that is founded upon person-centered therapy and evolves to include: CognitiveBehavioral, Solution-focused, Dialectical Behavior, Narrative, and Emotion-focused therapies. I incorporate techniques that assist in the modification of behavior and cognition such as emotion regulation using DBT, development of alternative behaviors and negative thought replacement using CBT. I incorporate the use of Trauma-Focused CBT in my work with adolescents in which I utilize techniques from Narrative therapy to assist clients in working through trauma.
My counseling style is nurturing and empathetic, with honesty and challenge. I want to provide a therapeutic relationship where you feel validated and confident enough to make steps toward bettering your life. We all have an idea of the person we want to be and sometimes we need a safe space to grow and then take flight. I’m hoping our interaction can be that for you.
I am a HUGE consumer of various fandoms. I enjoy all things that allow my nerd flag to fly. I love connecting with others over things that are special to them and I look forward to connecting with you.

I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Compassion fatigue

Very respectful and educated. She truly cares about my issues and the struggles I face and constantly provides different ways to help me
Dr. CJ is a great listener and helped me focus on making progress. Her kind support and empathy made all the difference and will continue to play a part in maintaining my mental health.
Dr CJ is the most amazing listener! I have found her advice and methods so beneficial and it’s only been a couple of weeks. Very down to earth and insightful. Would highly recommend.
Very easy to talk too, helps a lot with understanding both sides and helps other understand both side in couple therapy. Very happy with her.
Dr. Clemson’s-James is extremely understanding and open. She shares with me about her life as I share. This communication and support has provided me the opportunity to clearly express my feelings and take steps in a positive direction.
