As a mental health counselor, I have worked in a college counseling center, a medical practice as part of a neuropsychology department, and in private practice. My experience with a wide range of clients has taught me that every client is unique and therefore requires a unique approach. My general approach considers clients as the expert in their life, with my role as a guide to help uncover negative patterns and work towards positive change. I tend to utilize humor in my approach and personalize the treatment to the indivual’s needs. I draw on psychodynamic, humanistic, and cognitive-behavioral psychological theories in my work.
