My Approach to Helping
There is nothing more vital to effective treatment than the relationship between client and counselor. It is essential to be heard and understood and I dedicate each session to cultivating a safe, respectful, and validating connection with my clients. Although specific treatment interventions will change depending on the challenges we'€™re facing, this core philosophy remains constant.
My goal as a counselor is to provide support and guidance for people who want to make positive changes in their life. I provide counseling for a variety of life€™'s problems including anxiety, depression, relationship issues and general life stressors. I have specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of OCD, panic, agoraphobia, social anxiety, and specific phobias. I approach treatment as a collaborative process between the client and myself; utilizing integrative, evidence-based interventions. I work individually with adolescents (16+) and adults. I also offer unique clinical services, specifically in vivo (in real life) exposure therapy for individuals whose needs are best met outside of the office.
