About My Clients

My clients and I work together as a team. Together our goal is to help you grow, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in life. Collaboratively we will work to clarify your goals, and we will identify concrete strategies you can take to improve your relationships, overcome your challenges; and thrive in life and your relationships with others.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic work is rooted in modalities such as mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Family Systems Theory, along with using a trauma informed approach when working with adolescents, adults, couples and families. During treatment, I am likely to draw on ideas from one or more therapeutic methodology. I may suggest “homework” – things you can do at home between sessions to build upon our work together. I may also teach a practice of mindfulness, including meditative exercises to decrease stress and increase health and well-being. I will employ a diverse set of resources and modalities of therapy to assist in bringing about change, growth and solutions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe each person has unique strengths, opportunities and challenges. Thought collaborative therapy, each individual can connect with their true Self and work to fully express themselves for a more fulfilling life for themselves and others. In our work together, I strive to have full appreciation of you as a person, while respecting your individuality and diversity. Personally, I develop my own mind, body, and spiritual health through daily mediation, exercise in nature, yoga, and healthy eating.
