More Info About My Practice

I utilize positive, humanistic techniques from a variety of evidence-based approaches that foster healing and personal growth. I offer personalized treatment that is tailored to each client?s unique circumstances, needs, and goals. Many issues can be effectively treated in therapy and may respond well to short-term solution-focused techniques, skill-building exercises from dialectical behavior therapy, time-limited cognitive behavioral strategies, narrative therapy, or long-term psychotherapy. If you are ready to walk the path to healing and happiness, I am here to support you on your therapeutic journey.
