My approach to therapy is both collaborative and client-centered. I believe that the role of the therapist is not to provide their version of a solution, but instead to help clients access deeper knowledge and skills in order to solve problems effectively, build a relationship with the uncomfortable, and grow a life worth living. I work with many modalities, and among my favorites are Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I strive to ABL (always be learning) and enjoy continuing my education in this field to better serve my clients. I also encourage transparency and feedback in the therapy office, meaning I want your experience to be beneficial and transformative, but also with your input and collaboration. I look forward to joining you, wherever you are in your journey.
