My Approach to Helping
My therapeutic approach is based on applied behavior analysis. I believe every person has the capacity to develop the skills and opportunities necessary to improve their circumstances. Support, openness, and compassion are also essential to helping people find success in their lives. I believe individuals in treatment have unique issues that require personalized treatment for the best results.
I utilize clay, art, music, and a variety of other mediums to help people express themselves in therapy. My objectives are to empower you to choose a healthy life course, provide the support you need to make positive changes, and work with you as you accomplish your personal goals.
