My Approach to Helping

It's my belief that most of the healing begins and ends with a genuine, trusting therapeutic relationship.
I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help make the transformation a reality.
Art therapy is also another set of interventions that I pull from and clients of every age have found it to be enjoyable and cathartic.
Ultimately, I use therapies that have been shown to be scientifically effective at helping people change how they experience life quickly.
And that’s my priority, to help you get where you want to be, soon.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

We get to the root causes of your pain and stress so that we can set goals for how you would like your life to change.
By helping you identify and implement effective skills and challenge thought processes in and out of session, you can gain a completely new perspective on life, free from the constant burden of intrusive thoughts.
We constantly work on balancing both acceptance and change to keep you motivated in the work we do together.
By helping you to let go of those inner battles, you can gain a completely new perspective on life, like opening a window you never knew existed.
We don't just stop there though, I then show you how to actively choose beliefs that support you in your life instead of hold you back.
