My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy is very strength-based, cognitive, empowering, and educational. I believe that often problems are the result of a lack of adequate information, misconceptions about past or present life experiences or past trauma. I use a lot of evidence-based approaches to therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy.
