My approach is collaborative and active. I balance making therapy challenging at times, yet playful enough so that you will want to come back. My clients say this therapy-on-the-move is easier than a traditional sit-on-a-couch scenario in which the confinement of the room can get in the way of the work. I think for some people — especially teens & young adults — the idea of sitting in a room with a therapist is antithetical to being in a space that is good for sharing tough stuff. All that said, the outdoor work is *part* of the practice, roughly 30% of our time may consist of online sessions.
A variety of evidence-based practices inform my approach. I draw most from Motivational Interviewing, EFT, and Narrative Therapy. I don’t hold to the orthodoxy of an approach if it isn’t a fit for you, and a shift in method is a part of the therapy itself. My professional experience is like a set of guideposts and trail blazes for us to refer to in
Emotional and psychological struggles are rooted in past experience and in ongoing social dynamics. Being stuck in patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior are overwhelmingly socially mediated — and although the means to moving forward are in our own hands — the method to getting unstuck is best constructed in relationship. I use fewer words in person:)

There are significant differences between the educational focus and basic societal assumptions for Clinical Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Psychologists. I encourage anyone looking for a therapist to spend a few minutes to consider those differences in considering a therapist.

My way of being with people is founded on the understanding that there are common themes we share as humans, yet a significant range of coping strategies that we employ to cope with life. I have found no universal approach to apply to everyone, and so I bring pertinent pieces of various theories to our time together based on what we agree are the most important things to focus on in therapy.
