My Approach to Helping
My therapeutic approach is client-centered, cooperative, interpersonal, and supportive, with a focus on developing coping skills and solutions to manage challenges and achieve personalized therapeutic goals.
I utilize various therapeutic approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-informed skills to help clients understand the impact their thoughts, feelings, and actions have on their wellbeing and life course.
My work is guided by a strength-based approach where together, we can identify each client’s interpersonal assets, individual traits, unique insight, and the personalized coping skills that will best help them achieve their goals.
I work with children, teens and parents. I provide play therapy, Sandplay therapy, and utilize mindfulness and self-compassion to support my clients. I use Emotion-Focused Family Therapy in coaching parents to learn and utilize effective strategies with their children and loved ones. I see caregivers as significant healing agents in their child's treatment.
