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.
