My Approach to Helping
My training is in cognitive-behavior therapy but throughout the course of my professional experience, I have found that a combination of techniques and approaches are useful in treating individuals. I believe that every individual is unique and responds better to tailored therapeutic approaches. My goal in working with anyone is to be direct and genuine. I look to work with a person in a collaborative manner and provide an environment that is motivating and empowering to help each individual attain their goals and reach their fullest potential.
HobbiesInterests: Some of my favorite things to do include spending time with my husband and two children, watching football, dancing, reading, and watching movies.
