My Approach to Helping
Life has ups and downs. Each person has a unique story, and I have a genuine passion to listen and help people live the life they desire. I am committed to reducing the isolation and shame individuals may feel as they face emotional challenges. I work hard to ensure men, women, and children feel heard and understood. To facilitate the formation of a strong therapeutic relationship I provide a safe, judgment-free setting where individuals may explore their issues and express themselves freely.
I offer a multi-dimensional approach to treatment that focuses on a person's inherent strengths and sets meaningful goals to improve satisfaction and quality of life. While I have advanced training and experience in treating a variety of issues, I specialize in child mental health. I help parents and children to improve their communication skills so that they may develop healthy patterns of behavior, stronger relationships, a positive view of others, and a positive sense of self.
I utilize empirically-supported treatments such as parent child interaction therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, couples therapy, and SMART recovery.
