MY APPROACH

I utilize a person-centered and integrative approach...

in tailoring treatment to the unique needs and values of my clients. Trained in and comfortable working from a variety of clinical models, including: 

  • Solution-Focused

  • Cognitive-Behavioral

  • Emotionally-Focused

  • Psychodynamic and Attachment

  • Acceptance and Commitment

  • Narrative

 

I take great pride in my ability to be fully present in the room, creating a safe and supportive space whereby my clients can be truly themselves. I believe that a strong therapeutic rapport, built on trust, respect, empathy, acceptance, and attentiveness, is a crucial aspect in fostering positive changes.

 

I strive to empower my clients to identify personal strengths and cope with their concerns more independently and effectively. My services are supportive of diversity, including cultural, religious, racial, gender, and sexuality.  

"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination."
