I believe every person has the capacity to learn and make changes to improve their life. The process of understanding and responding to problems and hardships in new ways can be a challenging endeavor, but more importantly it can be encouraging, rewarding and empowering. I make deliberate efforts to form trusting, respectful and collaborative relationships with my clients and tailor treatment to their unique needs. Every person needs to feel safe, heard, and supported as they engage in work that requires vulnerability and courage. My foundation in therapy is strengths-based, person-centered and trauma-informed. I also pull from attachment and systems theories to understand each person in the context of their core relationships and communities. I regularly utilize second and third wave behavioral therapies (CBT, DBT, and ACT) and mindfulness practices with my clients.
