My Approach to Helping

My clinical approach is multi-disciplinary and rooted in psychodynamic theory, existential psychology, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and emotionally focused therapy (EFT). I also have a background in integrative health and wellness, which can contribute to a more in-depth perspective on treatment.

My education and experience in the integrative health and wellness realm greatly guide my comprehensive approach to therapy. I unequivocally believe that therapy must encompass more than symptom management and must at the very least consider the mind-body connection. Symptoms provide us with information, which is a valuable starting point, but I believe in delving deeper and asking, “How can we use this information?”

My style is collaborative, genuine, intuitive, direct, and non-judgmental, and I encourage clients to be true to themselves and transparent. Although treatment is based on an individual's needs and goals, the principal themes in all treatment are to help one regain one’s confidence and strength and to reinforce one’s resiliency and self-reliance.

Couples therapy can be some of the hardest yet most profound work ones does. I understand and revere the gravity, complexity, and reward of the process. Often, the primary focus of couples therapy is on “fixing the problem,” and when the underlying causes are not addressed, couples can become entrenched in the same cycle, the same pattern indefinitely. The more one understands a partner’s triggers and the history behind them, the more opportunity there is for vulnerability and empathy, followed by deeper connection.
