I recognize my clients’ strengths and empower them to identify what they need and the steps they can take to make positive changes. I combine the theoretical orientations of cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and narrative therapy to create an exploratory collaborative environment.
I have extensive experience with the following:
I have helped numerous adults stabilize their mood shifts, change behaviors that hindered goal/career achievement, and increase positive family and intimate relationships. I enjoy very much helping guide women and men through the process of getting to know themselves better. In addition, I specialize in helping people decide whether or not they want to become a parent and to start preparing for parenthood.
When providing services to children I utilize an extensive amount of art therapy to help a child feel more self confidence, do better in school, and have stronger peer relationships. I believe that collaborating with a child’s school is important. I connect with school officials and teachers to ensure all professionals are working together. I have attended numerous IEPs in my practice and have advocated strongly for school accommodations.
