Patients Seen: All Ages

I approach ther­a­py through focus­ing on devel­op­ing and heal­ing ones rela­tion­ship with self and oth­ers through which var­i­ous issues of mood, iden­ti­ty, and per­son­al func­tion­ing are explored. My patients and I col­lab­o­rate to iden­ti­fy an ide­al treat­ment approach that best suites their needs and rea­sons for seek­ing treat­ment. Every­one has moments in life when they need the sup­port of a trust­ed indi­vid­ual, who can help them to con­cep­tu­al­ize and strate­gize ways to build the life they want. As a social work­er and ther­a­pist for over 10 years with an exper­tise in trau­ma focused ther­a­py, Cog­ni­tive Behav­ioral Ther­a­py (CBT), and Moti­va­tion­al Inter­vei­wing (MI), I can assist you in con­nect­ing with the best of who you are and who you are will­ing to strive to become. I uti­lize up-to-date evi­dence based prac­tices derived from cog­ni­tive-behav­ioral and mind­ful­ness prin­ci­ples. These approach­es are tai­lored to each indi­vid­ual patient to ensure treat­ment is client-cen­tered and aligns with what each patient is seek­ing out of treat­ment. Your com­fort is essen­tial to a suc­cess­ful treat­ment jour­ney. Togeth­er, we can achieve any per­son­al goal you set out to achieve.
