Announcement icon We are currently accepting new clients to be seen via teletherapy.
I believe that my clients are the experts on their lives. With that philosophy, I work collaboratively with my clients to work toward their goals & help realize their full potential. My clinical style is generally Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) & psychodynamic, insight-oriented therapy; however, I adjust my style to fit my clients & their needs, integrating other styles such as mindfulness, strengths-based & motivational interviewing as appropriate. Additionally, I am trained in Accelerated Recovery Therapy, a treatment highly effective for PTSD, anxiety, phobias, grief & depression. I don't function from a one-size-fits-all approach.
I have experience in the school setting as well as in both non-profit & private mental health practice working with adolescents & adults. In those settings, I have helped empower clients to work through & overcome challenges such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, marital conflict, grief, loss & traumas.
I work with a team of clinicians at Positive Directions who all work closely together. We have a variety of specialty areas, including: substance abuse, problem gambling, co-occurring disorders, self-esteem, & anxiety & depression.
