APPROACH                                                    

I work with adults and adolescents who are coping with a wide  variety of concerns. I'm trained and  certified in various evidence based  treatments. During treatment, I  collaborate with all members of your  treatment team (psychiatrist, medical  oversight doctor, dietician) to provide  comprehensive, well-rounded care.  

 I believe therapy is a time to explore a  client's presenting concerns and for a  therapist & client to work together  towards the client's goals. Integrating  empirically supported treatments,  empathy, collaboration, validation, and teaching skills for change facilitate reaching  the quality of life a client is seeking. Mindfulness practice may often be  integrated into therapy. Therapy is tailored to a client's needs and goals,  and is provided in a supportive and collaborative environment.
