My Approach to Therapy
My therapy practice is built on the foundational belief in each individual’s truth and that the individual’s experience is where the focus of treatment begins. I also believe the individual is part of a greater system that includes one’s family, school and more. Therefore, my practice is highly collaborative and I value partnership as part of the treatment process. My approach to treatment is strengths-based and empowerment focused. I incorporate strategies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MSBR) into my practice. I serve clients who have a range of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, self-injury, gender and sexuality, family conflict, divorce, grief and loss.
