My Approach to Helping
Making the decision to seek help can be challenging and is a big first step on your journey to wellness. Wellness is not an absence of problems, but it is a process that helps us become more aware and make choices for a healthy fulfilling life. If you feel overwhelmed and want help developing coping skills and self-care, you are not alone. Support is available and change is possible!
I am a strong believer of Person-Centered therapy and its three main principles: unconditional positive regard, empathetic understanding, and transparency. Rather than adopting one treatment modality for all individuals, I use an integrative approach, which combines evidence-based treatment such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Support, and Play-Oriented therapy techniques. Although I believe the client is the expert in their life, therapy is a collaborative effort between you and I. Together, we will work on identifying and meeting your wants, needs, and goals.
My experience includes working with a diverse population by facilitating both individual and group therapy to promote mental wellness. I have worked in a variety of settings and enjoy working with children, young adults, parents, and families. I appreciate your consideration and hope we will have the opportunity to work together on your journey and achieve your goals.
