Working from a strengths-based, collaborative approach to counseling, I use a variety of techniques in assisting clients find solutions and reach their goals. My belief is that clients very often have the answers they are seeking already within themselves. Sorting through their hopes, fears, beliefs etc. is useful in identifying what may be preventing them from recognizing those answers and keeping them stuck.

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.

There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

My practice specialties are: child therapy, and adult therapy, including couples. My child therapy practice is devoted to treating children with a variety of emotional and developmental challenges, is respectful of children, valuing highly the views of parents. It uses techniques from Siegel's Interpersonal Neurobiology such as "name it to tame it" and the four S's that create a secure parent child attachment: feeling safe, seen, soothed, and secure. It also draws from Greenspan's DIR Floortime model, with key goals being to increase calmness, attention, and engagement, strengthen the ability to communicate, and develop higher level thinking.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

I have always held a passion for the therapeutic process and understand the power of therapy. I believe the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is essential for progress to be made. There is no one size fits all therapist! I take a person centered approach as well as recognizing the need for coping skills and mindfulness. I strives to create a safe environment through authenticity, trust, directness, and of course a little humor. Through this, I believe that one can achieve a state of contentedness and peace that we are all constantly searching for.
