 Therapeutic Style:

I approach therapy from a collaborative perspective and believe that clients often have the tools they need to make changes in their lives. I use a variety of techniques, depending on the individual’s circumstances. I often utilize CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy), with elements of mindfulness to help people ground themselves in the present. I consider the relationship between client and therapist to be a major component of successful treatment, so I adopt a stance of openness, flexibility, and curiosity about what comes up for clients in the moment.
