“My goal as a therapist is to assist clients in attaining peace and purpose in the midst of life’s conflicts and obstacles. I draw from a broad base of clinical training in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, behavioral modification, trauma systems theory, and bibliotherapy. My approach to therapy focuses on pairing the most effective treatment model with the individual, recognizing that every individual’s life experiences are unique and require unique treatment. This often includes addressing psychological, biological, social, and spiritual components. I am confident that in working together we can create positive changes by identifying and resolving troubling thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, so you are free to live the life you envision.”
“My goal as a therapist is to help children learn skills that will help them to feel happy with themselves, feel trust and happiness in their relationships, and feel confident in their place in their world. I draw from a broad base of child development, clinical training in cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, behavioral modification, solution-focused therapy, language-based therapy, play-based therapy, social skills training, Coaching model with families, and bibliotherapy. My approach will be to meet the client where they are and to match them with the treatment model that best fits with them and their life. I believe that inside every child there are gifts just waiting to be opened and I am confident that through working together we can find ways to facilitate positive change to improve their emotional and social functioning to live happier and healthier lives.”
