Approach

I firmly believe that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to psychotherapy. Within my therapeutic work, I blend a variety of approaches to mental health when working with clients which can include; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Psychodynamic and even mindfulness based approaches. All approaches currently offered are focused on incorporating work that targets cognitive restructuring and reframing, emotional regulation, deeper self exploration, personal healing and growth. In addition, my goal as your therapist is to show you how increased self-awareness empowers you to live your best, most authentic life.
