My Approach to Helping
In my practice as a therapist, I use the research on what works to help my clients get the outcomes they want: better relationships, managed anxiety, less depression, and more control over life.
I employ a number of evidence based therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Smart Recovery. Therapy works best when we consider how thoughts, beliefs, experiences, behaviors, body, friends, and family play into health. Symptoms don’t occur in isolation, they occur in the complex system of the mind and body of an individual who exists in a network of relationships.
Therapy is a place to develop and apply philosophy to get what you want out of life. Recovery and wellness occur in relationship and the therapeutic relationship is a vehicle to get to a different place than we are able to get to on our own. I bring the experience from my own therapeutic journey, my training and experience as a counselor, and the wealth of research in the field to help people get where they want to go.
