I believe therapy is a collaborative endeavor that takes place within a private, safe, supportive, and empathetic environment. It is important to me that you feel a therapeutic connection, I believe that is necessary to facilitate personal changes and achieve results. I will work to help you gain insight into your emotional experiences so you can work towards achieving the personal goals that you set for yourself. I have an experience working with children and families in crisis as well as working in different treatment settings including residential, outpatient and intensive outpatient settings.
I have specialized training in child-adult interactive therapy techniques, motivational interviewing and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. I primarily utilize a cognitive behavioral and solution focused approach as well as incorporating family systems and psycho-dynamic theory. I specialize in working with children age 3-12. I believe that any work with children must also incorporate collaboration with their parents and that when the family works together it promotes the best chance of long-term healing.
