My social work career has included advocacy for victims of domestic violence, clinical treatment of eating disorders, and general outpatient mental health counseling with individuals, couples and families. During our sessions, I like to focus less on the label and more on how your symptoms are affecting you and what you’d like to be different.
My Background and Approach
I use several different evidence-based treatments to guide and support my clients in the therapy process, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Person-Centered Therapy--to name a few. I have expertise in the areas of domestic violence, trauma, and eating disorders, as well as anxiety and depression.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that every person is the expert of their own life and has the ability to both accept and change what will give them a life worth living, and I strive to help each individual see their unique strengths. I also believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between the client and the therapist, and I will provide a safe and supportive environment to feel, share and grow.
