I come from Strengths - Based and Cognitive Behavioral approaches sprinkled in with some Dialectical Behavioral Approach into my ten years plus of experience doing therapy. My work with clients is collaborative. I don't just focus on one or two specific modalities and I can be eclectic in my approach depending on what clients bring into their session. Because therapy may bring up different levels of discomfort because of the unpleasant emotions, memories or thoughts that come up, I believe that in order to engage in this therapeutic process, a therapist and client should be able to establish rapport as well as to promote a safe and nonjudgmental environment. I work with clients with varying life issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, identity, relationships, and trauma.
