My professional experiences have spanned a variety of settings, including Academic, Intensive-Outpatient, and Private Practice. I have background in the fields of human communication and counseling/psychology, and rely on the scopes of these two disciplines to guide my therapeutic approach – be it Educational, Career, Couples, or Mental Health Counseling. In general, I believe that the bulk of what drives human behavior – both the useful kind and the sometimes-problematic kind – derives from the very practical intention to help ourselves. Issues arise, however, when we begin to depend too heavily on behaviors that, though seemingly logical, end up causing us more suffering in the long run.
Through the use of evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, we will explore alternatives to the often counterproductive patterns we fall into.
