As your partner in the therapeutic process, a relational model will frame our work. My theoretical approach to therapy is based on a strengths perspective, competency-based practice. Psychodynamic, client centered therapy goals of treatment include: improving problem solving skills, increasing communication skills, developing a deeper insight and promoting overall functioning. Individuals, couples, group and family therapy is available. As a clinician, I strive to establish a partnership with my clients to encourage and engage. When a secure base is established, the client's increased capacity for trust and learning is the direct result. We will create a healthy change.

I believe that therapy should be a place where people feel safe and supported to have their emotional experiences not just be heard, but held and made space for. The belief that people need affirmations alongside honest and authentic communication is at the core of how I approach therapeutic relationships so that treatment is a collaborative effort. Engaging in therapy offers a space to help identify and blossom these areas of connections in life and learn how to weave them together in a way that feels healing .
