About My Practice
Hello, I am so glad you have found my website and I would love to tell you a bit about my practice:
I am a fully licensed therapist and I enjoy working with individuals of all ages. I am able to address a wide range of issues, such as depression, trauma, grief, relationship challenges, motivation, anxiety, and more. My work is always grounded in the cultivation of a trusting and positive therapeutic relationship. This is truly the foundation from which all healing and change takes place. Additionally, it is due to this positive therapeutic relationship that I find clients are able to achieve desired results and are motivated to continue in therapy.
When working with adults, I always take a client centered approach and often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Mindfulness Practices. Additionally, I approach the therapeutic process from a strengths based perspective.
Children (Ages 4-12)
Children have an astonishing ability to work through emotional challenges when they are given a safe and therapeutic environment. Unlike adults, children's verbal and cognitive abilities are still developing. For this reason, when working with children, I primarily utilize directive and non-directive play therapy as this is the "language" through which children communicate. However, every child is unique and has a unique set of needs, which I continually reassesses throughout the therapeutic process.
