My therapeutic style

Challenges truly can be opportunities, they offer information to help us grow and change. When people are in pain I know how important it is to have a safe place to find ways to heal, to feel and to function better. I can help you find sustainable, sensible solutions that makes sense to you. In my practice, you can expect to be understood without judgment, treated with respect, kindness, a sense of humor, and compassion.

 

I believe therapy is a collaborative experience between you and your therapist. I provide an environment where you can expect to be treated with respect, kindness, and experience.

Therapeutic orientation

Life transitions at any age can be challenging. Transitions also provide opportunities for growth. I work collaboratively and respectfully with clients to discover tools to help you find and reach your goals as soon as possible. Therapy can and should be a place to explore who you are, what your goals might be, find acceptance, challenging emotions, relationships and more.

 

My approach is based on individual needs. The most important part of my work as an integrative psychotherapist is creating a trusting and authentic connection with my clients. I also use use a combination of therapeutic techniques and processes, including:

  • Relational Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Solution-Focused Therapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Dialectic Behavioral Therapy

  • Neuroplasticity for:

    • chronic pain

    • anxiety

    • a growth mindset

  • Somatic Therapy

  • Mindfulness-based techniques
