I treat adults (ages 18+) and see clients individually only.
Most of my clients are those who are searching for meaning in their lives, who are struggling with work stress, who want to communicate better with others, who are going through a transition, who have experienced a recent loss, or who are dealing with strained relationships. I have a special interest in working with clients who struggle with anxiety and are looking for new ways to manage their symptoms. I also have a special interest in working with clients who are currently or have experienced suicidal thoughts.
I use an approach that offers clients the chance to take control of the thoughts that take up space in their minds. Are they helpful thoughts, hurtful thoughts, or without evidence? This approach is better known as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
Coupled with CBT, I also use an approach called DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) which gives clients tools to use when emotions are high, or they feel overwhelmed. Client who learn tools from DBT are better able to handle stressful situations, communicate better, interact with their family and friends more effectively, and feel more emotionally balanced.
What is most important to me is meeting everyone where they are at and doing this without any judgement. The path to healing often takes many directions and turns and I want to help others develop a successful path to health in a way that works for them.
