Change is not easy; it is difficult; it takes courage. Although challenging, change is possible. In order to change, the individual must have the motivation & be given the opportunity to do so. I will work with you in a collaborative effort to improve your emotional state. My goal is to provide you with an appropriate, caring, & supportive environment where the steps towards change can become a possibility. Empathy is paramount to my practice. My theoretical orientations are primarily Cognitive-behavioral & Person-centered; although, I also use various eclectic & insight/awareness-oriented approaches.

These approaches are designed to challenge & reduce negative/distorted thinking along with the accompanying self-defeating behaviors. My goal is to increase positive/rational thinking that leads towards effective management of life's problems. Most change occurs between sessions & through clients' experimentation with different ways of thinking, behaving, and feeling.

To incorporate change, I utilize unconditional positive regard along with cognitive and dialectical behavior strategies; these assist in the regulation of emotions, stress tolerance, & effective management of interpersonal conflicts. The strategies are effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety, addiction, & other emotional issues.
