Approach to Therapy:
I approach my work with dedication, compassion, and a sense of humor. I feel honored that I get to help clients overcome challenges, cope with difficult situations, and heal past wounds.
Therapy is a collaborative process; I work with my clients to meet the goals they set. I operate from an integrated model, which means that I look at the person in his or her environment and utilize the treatment techniques from various theoretical approaches, including mindfulness, multicultural, family systems, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and psychodynamic therapies, that I believe will best help each client based on his/her unique situation.
Approach to Wellness:
It feels like we constantly have to make minor adjustments to maintain our work/life balance. To that end, I try to be flexible and realistic about what I do for self-care and encourage my clients to find the right mix for them. I enjoy spending time with my family, laughing with friends, baking, gardening, exercising, and escaping with a good movie.
