Approach to Therapy:
My approach to therapy is eclectic, based on the needs of the client, and informed primarily by Rogerian, Feminist, and DBT (mindfulness-based) theories. I am trained to lead DBT Skills Training groups, to conduct Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE), and to use sensorimotor techniques in the treatment of trauma.
Approach to Wellness:
I believe every human being needs the right balance in his/her life between work, play, and rest, and the right amount of social engagement, connectedness, love and support. A strong foundation of adequate sleep, nutrition, and exercise is necessary for both physical and mental health. Beyond this, the "right" balance can vary greatly from person to person. I always aim to practice this balance in my own life while assisting student clients in achieving the balance that works for them.
