My Approach to Helping
As a clinical psychologist, I have counseled adults and adolescents in many areas of life difficulties. I utilize several strategies including, but not limited to, Mindfulness, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Models and Brief Solution Focused with the goal of tailoring treatment to each individual's unique needs. I treat people who struggle with depression and anxiety as well as adjustment to life circumstances and challenges. My counseling style is interactive and non-judgmental, utilizing empathy and humor when appropriate, as I believe humor is an important part of well-being. I assist individuals in recognizing their own patterns of behavior that impact and cause distress in daily life and relationships. I ask questions that help individuals discover solutions and coping styles within themselves to help improve quality of life and self-understanding.
Sport psychology can help to enhance the performance, personal growth, and overall well-being of athletes regardless of age or competition/participation level. Whether one is an elite, student, competitive recreational, or recreational athlete, developing mental and emotional skills to deal with issues of performance, adjustment, transitions, and relationships can maximize potential and improve overall emotional well-being.
