My approach to therapy includes the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Through combining these theories, it helps create realistic and attainable goals to change unwelcome behaviors. I am passionate about using play and art therapy with adolescents and children as an added alternative to talk therapy.

I believe that making behavioral changes personal to you are ultimately how the most change will come. Together we will discover realistic ways of making positive changes come to fruition.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

What I love most about being a therapist is to observe firsthand how people's lives can and do change when they are ready. The power of therapy is beautiful, dynamic, and unique to each individual. I am passionate about having the honor and ability to connect and work with people to promote growth, knowledge, and strength.

What Makes up a Problem?

Although genetics and biology may predispose people to certain mental health issues, the impact of environment and life-experience can also have a great effect on a person. Through my experience, it is possible to change and minimize unwanted behavior(s) by repetition of new desired behavior(s) whether the issues is due to genetics or environment. I believe that in certain cases it is necessary to combine medication and psychotherapy for treatment of certain biochemical issues/imbalances.
