My Approach to Helping
My approach to treatment is one that is holistic, collaborative, supportive and authentic. My role is not to dictate advice but to work collaboratively with you. I look at how family of origin, physical health, and emotional health are impacting individuals. I integrate many approaches into my practice, drawing from Attachment-Based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, wellness, and family of origin issues. I believe that these are the keys to changing unhealthy core beliefs. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the greatest tools for successful therapy.
I have experience working with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual assault, grief, self-esteem issues, and relationship issues. Having trained under Dr. Townsend, my approach is, attachment-based, client-centered, emotionally-focused, and psycho-dynamic. I believe we can make an impact together and create what is needed change.
When asking for help, we need to be treated non-judgmentally. We all need support to overcome life's challenges. Moreover, we all need someone that listens compassionately and empathetically. I respect my clients and their unique backgrounds, recognizing that people come from many different ethnic, religious, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
