Approach to Therapy
I draw from a variety of psychotherapy approaches to help alleviate clients’ suffering and empower them to address their life challenges, set courageous goals, and live with a sense of meaning and purpose.
I have worked with adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, traumatic experiences (e.g, abuse, sexual assault), anxiety, sexual identity, relationship difficulties, grief and loss, and schizophrenia.
As I work with clients, I draw from:
- Attachment theory
- Solution-focused therapy
- Exposure therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Mindfulness practices
- Narrative therapy
- Positive psychology
- Motivational interviewing
- Personal wellness
- Psychological testing and assessments
