In working with individual clients, I provide a safe, supportive space to identify and explore with curiosity, rather than judgement, what is at the heart of the current issue. My therapeutic style is respectful, collaborative and direct. Together, we take a clear look at the current situation, and then investigate the beliefs, behaviors and habits of mind that are causing distress and discomfort. Together, we create a new roadmap to navigate life in more skillful, healthier ways. Clients often report that they like the way I help to hold them accountable, from week to week, for the goals they are setting, and the changes they are making.
All of the interventions I use with clients are evidence- based. They include, but are not limited to, mindfulness techniques, body-centered psychotherapy, trauma treatment, communication skills, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and family of origin work. I have a profound belief in the natural human capacity for growth, healing, and resiliency. This belief guides all my work with clients.
