My Approach to Therapy
I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship developed between therapist and family is the foundation in exploring the underlying causes/reasons of the presenting problems as well as the tool for change to occur. Having worked with families and schools I understand the importance and necessity for a collaborative approach with parents and teachers. Using Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Supportive Psychoanalytic Therapy the child and I explore current stressors, significant life events, or other emotional/social difficulties. I strive to create a safe and supportive environment to identify and build existing strengths while learning new skills and coping mechanisms.
