Approach to Therapy:
I use an integrative approach to therapy, finding treatments that best match the clients' needs. My work is influenced by psychodynamic principles, DBT, ACT, and strength-based perspectives. I aim to provide a supportive, non-judgmental space where clients can feel safe to explore their areas of concern.
Approach to Wellness:
I truly feel that as clinicians, we need to believe what we are selling. Therefore, when I encourage students to prioritize their self-care, I take this challenge myself and try to incorporate wellness and stress reduction into my daily life. I enjoy making time to laugh, try new things, practice self-compassion, and remain physically active.
I am collaborative in my approach to supervision and absolutely don't see it as a one size fits all. Similarly to my clinical approach, I am very curious to hear from the supervisee what they are hoping to get out of our work together. I draw from their strengths and pay attention to where they are in the field and often tailor our time based on these pieces. I try to bring humility, humor, and honesty to my supervision and see supervision as a really valuable part of our work as clinicians.
