My Approach to Helping

My goal as a clinician is to facilitate the change a client is ready to make in their lives. Clients enter treatment with varying levels of readiness to commit to change. Therapy is an endeavor in which one can explore their ambivalence, construct personal and interpersonal goals, build a more stable sense of identity, and devise the steps needed to achieve their objectives. I take a strength-based approach to increasing client's resiliency towards meeting the many challenges that life poses. I view the therapeutic alliance as empowering and collaborative, involving a mutual effort between the therapist and the client in reconciling the differences between who the client is with whom she or he wishes to be.

I received my doctoral degree in clinical psychology and am working towards licensure in the state of Wisconsin. I provide psychotherapy services to adolescents and adults with a range of clinical needs, including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, identity development, interpersonal challenges, trauma, psychosis, substance use, and stress-related difficulties. I take an eclectic approach to treatment, integrating psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and humanistic techniques. In other words, I am flexible in my work with clients and meet them where they are. I see the working relationship as the primary vehicle of change.

I also provide psychological evaluations to individuals across the lifespan for a variety of referral reasons. I am currently an instructor with the Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology and teach courses in psychological assessment.

More Info About My Practice

I will also be beginning facilitating a Mindfulness-Based Stress and Anger Reduction Psychotherapy Group on Thursday evenings. This weekly psychotherapy group is open to individuals over the age of 18 who are interested in learning new strategies to reduce stress and process emotions – particularly anger – more effectively. Each group session will begin with a mindfulness exercise that orients participants to the present moment and teaches concepts related to relaxation, acceptance, and awareness. Skills will be practiced in session related to anger management techniques, stress-reduction practices, interpersonal effectiveness strategies, and assertive communication, among others. This group blends interpersonal, psychoeducational, and process components of psychotherapy, and will be flexible to the needs of its participants. The group is conducted in an open, continuous format, and the makeup of group participants will likely change from week to week. If you or someone you know is interested, please feel free to reach out to me.
