I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 18 years of experience in the field. The majority of my experience has been working with children and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression and trauma. I use a very humanistic and client-centered approach as you are the expert in your own life. I help client's to identify their personal strengths and use them as a tool to work through current challenges.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In the first session with a client, my primary goal would be to get to know you and help you identify your strengths and goals. I believe that therapy should be done both positively and collaboratively. To this end, I will begin to get to know you by asking questions, assisting you in identifying your strengths, and asking you to share your motivation and goals for treatment. Together we will develop a plan for treatment to address your goals and needs.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

One of my biggest strengths is my ability to connect with others and provide empathy and understanding. As well as taking a strengths-based approach to helping clients through their individual needs.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I utilize CBT to help clients to understand and connect how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and impact functioning. Also to teach the client skills to cope and reduce negative thoughts.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I use the DBT practice to address concerns with those with mindfulness, interpersonal relationships, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation skills.

Trauma-Focused CBT

I used trauma focused CBT with children and adolescents to guide them through providing psychoeducation, coping skills and processing their trauma.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I utilize a client-centered approach in working with adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, and life transitions. In a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space we can explore the negative patterns in your life, work through any barriers, and move towards healing, growth, and change
