I have been working with individuals, families, couples and groups for over 20 years as they navigate a wide variety of struggles and challenges. Together, we will work to set goals, identify obstacles and barriers to success, and strive to make positive changes that can enhance overall quality of life. Change can be difficult. As such, my aim is to provide a supportive and validating environment where positive transformation can occur. I have worked with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief/bereavement, relationship issues/challenges, self-esteem issues, life transition and adjustment struggles, divorce, substance misuse, obsessive compulsive related behaviors and thoughts, anger, Bipolar Disorder, intimate partner violence, behavioral issues in children/teens, trauma and PTSD, sexual issues, suicidal and self-harming thought, and more. I also have experience working this those who are living with more complex challenges, such as personality disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic and Antisocial Personality Disorders), psychosis, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, those court mandated to treatment, individual working in high risk/stress professions (i.e. first responders, law enforcement, corrections, etc...), and other mental health difficulties.

My treatment methods

Attachment-based

Healthy and secure attachments are integral to having fulfulling relationships. I incorperate attachment theory throughout my work with clients and help them identify if and how issues in this area may be related to their current challenges/struggles.

Forensic Psychology

I have worked with the forensic population for over 15 years. I use evidence based pactices and approached to work with client experiencing these challenges. We will non-judgementally review current issues and work towards managing any issues/behaviors that are/have resulted in legal challenges or risks.

Eclectic

Being in this field for over 20 years, I have training, education, and/or experienes with a wide-varoiery of therapy syles and modalities. This includes CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Mind-Body and Somatic techniques, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, reality therapy, and more. I work with clients to best find the approach that they are most comftorabel with and that can address their needs most effectively.

Strength-Based

Each client enters treatment with a set of strenghts. At times, we can loose sight of these assets. Working to identify and leverage these strenghts can lead to increased reselience and positive growth.
