Adults, Couples, Families, & Children
My primary goal as a psychotherapist is to bring out a person’s ability to thrive at their utmost potential. Combining an individualized therapeutic approach with evidence-based practices like cognitive behavioral therapy, I work with individuals to challenge destructive thinking, utilize their strengths, and and not feel defined by their diagnoses.
With the supportive benefits of psychotherapy, I fully believe that everyone can develop the necessary skills to apply in their daily lives. I collaborate with my clients to create a unique “toolbox” comprised of techniques discussed and practiced in each session that they may implement between sessions. Consequently, their competence and future-orientation is enhanced, and they are better able to manage and overcome their mental health challenges.
Often, individuals largely benefit from learning alternative communication skills with their families and loved ones. In these cases, I encourage family therapy where every member has an equal opportunity to speak freely and develop healthier ways to express themselves. Additionally, I engage children in play therapy and create a safe space for expression of all difficult and confusing emotions.
Having experience with a variety of populations including adults, older adults, children, adolescents, and individuals with developmental disabilities, I help individuals of all walks of life meet their unique needs and gain the self-worth they deserve.
