Hello here is summary of my experience and approach to therapeutic counseling;
My experience as a clinical social worker for over 25 years includes working in the prevention and treatment of family violence, victim advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and to assist individuals experiencing depression, loss and grief. I have assisted individuals and families struggling with communication and conflict issues and provided counseling for youth as part of court ordered diversion related to behavior problems in school and at home, truancy, substance abuse, adjustment problems divorce and family separations.
My approach to counseling is client centered and solution focused in a collaborative approach to assisting clients in identifying key concerns in an atmosphere based in mutual respect. I take a holistic approach to therapy taking in account environmental, cultural and familial influences identifying client strengths and motivation for change. Treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy with focus in identifying and changing negative thinking patterns, incorporating techniques such as mindfulness and meditation.
Thank you for taking the time to review my bio and commend you for making the first step in seeking help. I am comfortable using either video teleconferencing ,telephone, live chat or messaging in conducting therapy sessions depending on your preference. I look forward to hearing from you!

Only 2 sessions in but my daughter likes Frank. I thought she wanted a female therapist but Frank obviously won her over and that's not easy to do. So far so good!
