I specialize in working with families, adolescents and teens. I enjoy partnering with young people and their parents to help support growth and unity within the family system. I also serve individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, attachment disorders, life transitions, grief and loss issues and addictions through the use of evidence based practices and compassionate care. In practice I take an eclectic and integrative approach. I utilize a range of interventions including motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, relational, play and experiential strategies. I feel it is important to assess each client’s needs and wants and tailor treatment to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual client, couple, family or group.
My theoretical styles include Adlerian and Family Systems, meaning that I view clients in a positive way and I believe that all individuals have the capacity to grow to creatively overcome their problems and to develop useful and meaningful social relationships. Additionally, I believe individuals are inseparable from their network of relationships.
