Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #90985
In a world full of critics, I believe we each deserve to have someone in our lives who will listen, motivate, encourage, and challenge without judgement. As a marriage and family therapist, I truly enjoy the unique opportunity to provide this type of support to others. I find that typical sessions may include a combination of tears, laughter, insight, and collaborating to discover techniques and solutions to ease the stress that has led you to seek support.
I like to provide differentiated therapy based on each individual's needs. I utilize a variety of techniques pulled from therapies that have been shown to be effective in managing symptoms of depression and anxiety including cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative, and solution-focused therapy. Additionally, I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, which focuses on building attachment/relationship enhancement and increasing compliance through play.
I am also nationally certified in Trauma Focused-CBT, which is a highly effective treatment for children who have experienced trauma. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, along with families, couples, and groups.
