Therapy is a process of discovery and change, which, although often challenging, I believe is always an endeavor worth taking. As I greatly respect one's decision to make this commitment to themselves, I take an active approach in the therapy process and work collaboratively with my clients towards healing and insight. I primarily make use of psychodynamic techniques with a general focus on helping to increase self-awareness, a sense of wellbeing, and a sense of empowerment to achieve desired change. However, it is important to note that treatment goals established by my clients and me are individualized to meet each client's needs.
