Working closely with clients to help them achieve their goals is a passion for me. I challenge clients to overcome personal barriers and build on their strengths to create empowerment and confidence. Individualized to each person’s needs, I use evidence-based modalities to create a safe and encouraging environment, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. Using a collaboratively developed treatment plan, I have a special interest in working with children (ages 6+), adolescents, and family units to build on strengths and overcome challenges.
I believe everyone deserves to be heard and listened to with compassion, empathy, and understanding. It is truly an exciting experience when a client makes progress, achieves a goal, overcomes a fear, and amplifies self-esteem. I cannot wait to take that journey with you and be a part of your growth.
