My Approach to Helping
I believe therapy can positively transform a person's life. I will create a safe, supportive and empowering therapeutic space for you to transform life's challenges into an opportunity for growth. I will utilize therapy techniques that are the most effective in order to help you explore the presenting issues, build new coping skills and ultimately grow into the person you desire to be. Theoretically, I lean towards cognitive behavioral therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches.
