My Approach to Helping
I have extensive experience working with adolescents and their families, as well as individual adult clients. I provide individual and family therapy specializing in areas related to self-esteem, depression, multi-cultural concerns, unresolved loss, anxiety, life transitions, individual autonomy, substance abuse, assertiveness training, boundary setting, teen issues and parentchild dynamics.
When working with clients during therapy, I draw on a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths-Based and Solution-Focused Therapy modalities. My intention through the therapeutic process is to appropriately join with and empower my clients in identifying and clarifying their personal goals while re-framing their self-defeating beliefs which may hinder their well-being. My aim is to assist my clients and their families by making positive, lasting changes.
