Therapeutic Approach

Using an eclectic approach that focuses on SELF-LOVE, GROWTH & HEALING and integrates aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy, person-centered therapy and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), I will help you recover from the life challenges that get in the way of you living the very best version of your life.

In treatment, you and I will address a variety of feelings and stressors. We will start with an initial assessment to clearly define your short and long term goals for therapy and we will use these goals to create a strategy for you to attain the life you want.

Our work together is always collaborative. At times, I am a quiet advocate or active listener and at other times, I might more encourage you to consider another perspective of yourself and your circumstances.
