Some areas in which I specialize are anxiety, depression, relationship issues/divorce and low self-esteem.
As a therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients in processing their experiences and finding healthy and productive ways to solve problems. I believe that empathy and a strong therapeutic relationship are at the heart of the therapeutic process. In the treatment process, I allow for my client to direct the treatment plan and formulate their own treatment goals, which can change throughout treatment. I see my role as one of support, guidance, active listening, and empowering the client to develop positive coping mechanisms in the process of making changes to thoughts and behaviors.
