In working with people, I always look for the strengths that a person carries with them that have often gone overlooked due to the stressful events that have been endured. I view my responsibility as helping people remove the road blocks that prevent them from experiencing a fulfilling life. These road blocks may take the form of thoughts, difficult emotions, the way people act, or difficulties interacting with one's environment and social network. I want to assist people in adapting to these areas with evidence based interventions, so that people I meet with can return to enjoying their lives. My style is empathetic, warm and genuine.
As a therapist I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to understand the impact that certain thoughts have on a person’s emotions and actions. I am also trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, (CBT), Family Systems, Play Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). A key component of my approach is assessment of the client’s social network to understand their connection with others
