My Approach to Helping
I work with adults who are experiencing relationship issues, life transitions, anxiety or depression or low self worth. With teens specifically, therapy focus is often centered around family or school issues, as well as, any of concerns listed above.
I have post graduate training and experience working with trauma survivors. Trauma can be pervasive, affecting all areas of life. I create a safe environment to process and heal. Additionally, I provide couples counseling with training in the Gottman Method. The Gottman Method works to rebuild connection, solve problems and effectively communicate.
I have training and experience in several models of therapy and I pull from different models to create a treatment plan specific to each individual client's needs. The work we do together is collaborative and includes processing how past experiences contribute to current thought processes and relational issues, as well as, skill building to reduce anxiety and depression symptoms and increase coping.
