My Approach to Helping
My approach is grounded in the humanistic understanding that each individual is unique and influenced by their particular life experiences. I value building a therapeutic space where we establish trust and our work is collaborative, supportive, and based on the best available research. I bring a background in cognitive-behavioral (CBT), relational, mindfulness, solution focused and insight oriented approaches with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
