My Approach to Helping
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this. I am a Doctorate level Clinical Psychologist and offer over 20 years of experience in working from an empathic, strength-based approach that is uniquely tailored to the needs of each person in a safe, non-judgmental environment. My clinical specialties and areas of professional interest include depression and anxiety related to life transitions, aging, care-giver burden, medical issues, grief, relationships and addiction.
I have learned that there is not one approach when working with individuals. I have found that using a wide variety of techniques and skills that are tailored to your needs have been most successful. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) combined with mindfulness-based, therapeutic guidance and solution-focused based therapies have been most helpful.
Life transitions are not easy and can rarely be dealt with alone. Support and clarification can truly empower and motivate you to make changes that lead to better mental and physical health. My style is warm, empathetic, approachable, and laid back. My goal is to listen deeply and carefully in order to understand you and your unique experiences. I provide a space where you can feel safe, comfortable and validated.
