Introduction

Welcome to Mandarin Counseling

I have been working in the fields of mental health and substance abuse for over 30 years.  I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Certified Addictions Professional with an IC&RC credential. During my career, I have counseled hundreds of alcoholics and other drug abusers, and supervised a dual diagnosis program. I have done extensive work with Adult Children of Alcoholics and other family members affected by a family member with an addiction. I have worked with adults and adolescents with many different issues and with children with ADHD and autism and many other childhood emotional and behavioral problems. Working with the parents of these children, I have guided them in the development of skills and strategies for dealing with their children’s and their own problems. I have done a lot of work with the children of divorced or single parents, providing them with support during their difficult adjustment. At the present time, I am doing play therapy with children over the age of 5, counseling adolescents and adults who are having difficulty with depression, anxiety, mood and adjustment issues, addictions, PTSD, grief and loss.  In my private practice, I am also working with pre-marital, marital and other couples who are experiencing relationship and communication problems. Besides addictions counseling techniques, I currently utilize a cognitive behavioral approach which works to solve current problems and change self-defeating thinking and behavior.
