My Approach to Helping
Life will never ask for your permission to throw curve balls and obstacles your way. With effective tools and strategies, you can feel confident to take on life’s challenges. My primary focus as your provider is to assist and guide you through the journey of healing. I make it a priority to align my treatment approach to your particular needs. It goes without saying that you are the true leader of your story, considering that you are in fact the author. I allow my patients to lead the sessions while providing support, validation and insight along the way.
I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, focusing on assisting individuals with developing healthy coping skills to manage daily stressors. I specialize in utilizing a variety of effective intervention approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), strengths based, solution focused, harm reduction and crisis intervention. I also utilize several components of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) consisting of distress tolerance, emotional regulation and mindfulness techniques.
My mission is to assist you with achieving your goals in a safe and inviting clinical setting. Taking the first step can certainly be difficult. Simply thinking about change can be overwhelming and intimidating. Through collaboration, we will develop a treatment plan that will be centered around growth and healing.
I look forward to working with you!
