I use a solution-focused approach to my therapy while utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques.
My approach to therapy is based on empowerment and supporting people in a way that allows them to be the best versions of themselves. I tend to lean towards a more accessible, easy-going approach when helping clients work towards goals important to their journey. I find that bringing humor to the session lends to a more comfortable therapeutic environment. While identifying goals can often be challenging, my aim is to help clients identify strengths and learn the skills needed to make positive changes in their lives.
