My Approach to Helping
I believe the best way to achieve optimal results in mental health care is to take time in getting to know your story. In order for us to create meaningful and practical solutions for your current concerns, I need to take time in understanding who you are, where you’ve been, and what you value.
I hope to offer a fresh approach to mental health treatment. My practice model is low-volume, yet high quality care. This allows the time needed to personalize your care and provide treatment options that address root causes and offer integrative approaches to management. Additionally, in order for you, your family, or your loved one to trust the work we will do, I want to remove the power dynamics that get in the way. This involves me being open about who I am in sessions.
My approach to treatment involves looking at the best science and evidence available to help make the most informed decisions on treatment options for you. However, your own life story, strengths, and interests (art, music, sports, your philosophy, etc.) will be relied upon to help find the best avenues towards your idea of a good quality of life.
Ultimately, it will be the combination of evidence-based data, your story, and our alliance that will determine what road to take. The point of this transparency is for you to know who you’ve decided to put your trust in. That way, you can can comfortably go through this journey (at times, difficult) with me and see change happen.
Additionally, I have specialty training in diagnosing and assisting individuals impacted by conditions that affect social skills – including autism spectrum, social anxiety, and ADHD.
