Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #90985
I am extremely passionate about helping people live their best lives and enjoy the process of getting to know my clients. I am strength-based and use a variety of techniques drawn from different therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and emotion-focused therapies. I have a warm, casual, friendly, and conversational style. During sessions I am interactive, connected, and do not take notes. Clients often comment on my ability to remember even small details about their lives. I work with teens and adults, individually, as a family, or within a relationship (couples).
During sessions, I like to find a balance between insight-oriented work and identifying practical solutions to improve the day to day. I work hard to learn about the client's lives in order to help identify patterns and make connections that weren't previously in awareness. I also encourage clients to dig deep and work hard in order to meet goals.
