My Approach to Helping
Are you ready to begin gaining insight, understanding, and skills to navigate your experiences? It is my honor to join you on that journey. I will work with you to understand the ways you've been impacted by your experiences, recognize the source of your symptoms, and learn to have compassion for yourself while finding your own interpersonal strengths.
My theoretical orientation is Humanistic and person-centered which I integrate with specific interventions from other orientations such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to focus on what is working for you and playing to your strengths. I provide my client's with tools that build towards emotional flexibility.
