My Approach to Helping
I work with individuals using a holistic approach to mind, body and soul by allowing clients to attain balance and overcome everyday obstacles while meeting the individuals needs. I utilize different approaches to psychotherapy by incorporating various mind-body interventions including: mindfulness skills, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, solution focused brief therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. I believe that each and every individual can benefit from increasing self-awareness, focusing on one’s strengths, and the development of effective communication skills.
I have a concentration in addictions and have worked with many individuals struggling with substance abuse. I approach clients with a nonjudgmental style, meeting the client where they are, focusing on their readiness to change.
I strive to create an environment that is safe and comfortable where my clients feel as if they are being heard and valued with no fear of judgment. In addition, I foster the development of a trusting relationship. I have always had a desire to help others and believe that every individual has the ability to become the best version of themselves.
