It is the responsibility of the therapist to tailor a therapy session to the unique needs of the client. I believe in pulling from many successful techniques in an eclectic and integrated approach to therapy.

I view therapy as a collaborative, shared experience and seek to help my clients feel safe, comfortable, and truly understood.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT for short, is one of the main therapeutic modalities used by therapists. This is because it is empirically valid and proven to treat anxiety and depression. Statistics have shown CBT to be the most effective therapy for treating anxiety, depression, and many other conditions.
