Families First Therapy, MA, LPCC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Albuquerque
You may have a specific area of concern, or you may find yourself among the many people who find they have trouble describing exactly what they are looking for in counseling or that there multiple concerns seem to overlap. If you have questions about how to choose a counselor who feels right for you, and whether I might be that person, please give me a call so we can briefly discuss whether we might be a good fit. If I am not a good fit I will be happy to try to connect you with someone who may be!
While my work is spontaneous, improvisational, and tailored to your specific needs and desires, it is consistently informed by and grounded in an eclectic variety of theories and a large body of scientific research. I seek to build on your strengths to help you accomplish your identified goals.
I am a LGBTQ safe and sensitive provider and a kink / consensual non monogamy friendly provider!
