My therapeutic style incorporates strength-based approaches where you have a voice in your treatment:

  • Dialectic-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Solution Focused therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Nutritional and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health
  • Trauma-Informed therapy
  • Humanistic therapy
“Life can be stressful with unexpected trauma and hardships along the way. It is normal to be facing life stressors as we are all growing and becoming a better version of ourselves. Please allow me to use my therapeutic knowledge and experiences to provide you with support, care, and therapeutic tools as we go through this journey together so that you can become stronger and happier.”

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
