I have been providing individual psychotherapy and counseling to adults and adolescents for the past 15 years. I have learned that each client enters therapy with his/her own unique story, history, and set of experiences. Therefore, each client will have different needs along their path towards healing. With this understanding, I practice an integrative and individualized style of therapy to best address your specific needs. I draw from a variety of treatment strategies that are supported by empirical research, including, but not limited to, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal/Relational therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Client Centered-Strength based therapy. My therapeutic style can be described as interactive, empathetic, nonjudgmental and gently challenging. As a therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them learn new coping skills that allow them to better manage life stressors, explore and better understand the origins of their behavior, and develop a healthy sense of self. I focus on client's strengths while also directing attention to those behaviors and thoughts that hold people back from achieving their goals and living a more authentic life. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where people can gradually learn to let go of their self-defeating patterns and rely more on their healthy life enhancing strengths so that they can begin to feel more connected to themselves as well as to have richer and more meaningful relationships with others. therapy .
