My Approach to Helping
My therapeutic approach is fundamentally humanistic, in that I believe we are more than our symptoms.
Whether this means overcoming a specific challenge, navigating life change, or treating a specific diagnosis—my treatment approach is person-centered, supportive, and most importantly, collaborative. I believe that we are "masters of our own ship", as they say; and with the power of therapeutic insight, we learn to understand and navigate turbulent emotions as we steer towards healthy change.
My specialty is behavioral health with a background in substance abuse, anger management, and recovery.
I offer a variety of treatment services, including short term mental health counseling, long term psychotherapy, substance abuse treatment, and couples counseling. Our clinical work will be best tailored to your individual needs, with the understanding that one size does not fit all.
Change is daunting—and taking a step towards improving our wellbeing is no exception. Your courage and willingness to explore yourself is a powerful strength, and I look forward to taking that step with you!
More Info About My Practice
As a therapist, I have worked in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and in private practice.
I have facilitated court mandated anger management and recovery groups, providing mental health treatment to individuals suffering from co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. It is with these experiences, that I have first gained a deep and unwavering respect for supportive and collaborative treatment approaches.
In my personal journey, I have navigated mental health challenges with the understanding that stigma is only as powerful as we allow it to be. I am here to support and empower you in yours.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
You're not alone.
Therapy can feel daunting, especially if our past experiences have felt less than helpful.
In our work together, I hope to change that.
Firstly, my goal is to first create a safe and collaborative space for positive change and emotional growth.
Our work together will be holistic, with the understanding that we are more than our symptoms.
Taking the first step to improve our well-being is truly a strength, and I am here to support and empower you in your journey.
