My Approach to Therapy:

I use various approaches in helping my clients address their unique challenges. My training is in evidence based modalities. My practice involves using various framework including CBT, ACT, Mindfulness, and Compassion based approaches. I also rely heavily on trauma focused interventions such as IFS, EMDR and CPT. Traumatic experiences may involve major events or may involve past events relevant enough to impact your perspective of yourself and the world. As I continue to be in clinical practice for close to 15 years, the breadth and scope of the experience has made me to be a compassionate therapist who will listen and provide support to you in this journey. My clients share that I provide therapeutic feedback in kind but assertive ways which have been instrumental in helping them stay motivated in their lives.
