While Synergy Counseling Services, LLC was officially formed in June of 2019, it's inception and development spans decades in the depths of my mind. I have a varied set of experiences since the early 2000's in several settings, including school counseling, agency counseling and inner city substance abuse counseling.  It was these experiences that honed my skillset and inspired me into the formation of this private practice.  

I have seen the effects of bullying, substance abuse, and trauma. I've seen the long term effects of what being ostracized as a child has done to an individual, and how it affects one's relationship patterns all the way through to adult life.  

A whole-hearted sense of commitment and devotion to healing your whole being is the driving force behind your success.  As you begin therapy together,  I will work alongside you, utilizing proven methods to look at what works for you currently and help you break the difficult thought patterns and behaviors that hold you back from living your most authentic life.  Together, we will take the pieces that doesn't work and examine them, turn them over, and replace them with something that propels you forward towards what you truly wish to be.

My approach pulls from many varied counseling techniques.  Above all, I believe that teaching you the skills from these various models that you need to go forward is far more valuable to you than offering you just one theoretical perspective.
