My Approach to Helping
I believe, and research has show, that the most important part of the therapeutic relationship and the thing that promotes change is a good, trusting relationship between the client and the therapist. The client is the expert on their needs and personality and that treatment is only effective if the client and therapist work in partnership with one another. With 20 years of experience, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapies to tailor a clinical approach to the individual strengths of the client.
I have worked in various settings including foster care, nursing homes, independent and assisted living, private practice, residential treatment facilities, community mental health centers, sexual trauma treatment centers, schools, partial hospitalization programs, emergency shelters, juvenile justice facilities, and colleges.
I have worked with diverse ages and populations who want to make changes to their lives.
