Values and Philosophy

I believe in the importance of providing a therapeutic environment that is safe, supportive and non-judgmental. As a therapist, I am actively involved helping clients explore issues to gain new understanding, identify strengths, and learn coping skills. Additionally, I work to be genuine, accepting and empathic because my experience has been clients are better able to make healthy changes when these factors are present. Therapy has the potential to be a healing and empowering experience leading to great personal growth. To help foster that process, I believe in tailoring therapy to meet a client's needs and working together to address and resolve the issues that brought you to therapy.

Therapeutic Technique and Methodology

I draw from several treatment modalities that have evidence to support their effectiveness including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Integrated Behavioral Couple Therapy. Additionally, I have specialty training in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
