Biography – “I collaborate with clients to identify their strengths and resources, as well as the obstacles that can get in the way of change.”
I believe that for clients to have the most beneficial therapeutic experience, there must be a strong relationship between client and therapist. Because of this, I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is comfortable, non-judgmental, and empathetic.
I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents. My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, emotional and behavioral disturbances in adolescents, life transitions, relationship concerns, family conflict, military issues, and parenting support.
I collaborate with clients to identify their strengths and resources, as well as the obstacles that can get in the way of change. I work together with clients to discover, learn about, and practice the tools necessary for change to occur. This is done with the use of evidence-based approaches that are tailored to the individual.
