Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My Approach

I tend to use a Cognitive-Behavioral model when working with clients. I am trained in other treatment models, and will use them accordingly depending on the client’s needs and the issue that is being presented.  Cognitive-Behavioral therapy simply means I will be exploring your thoughts, beliefs and how these thoughts and beliefs impact the choices you have made. The benefit of examining one’s thoughts is that we can change the way we think even if the situation does not change, which results in changes in how we feel and behave.
The way I work with clients is to help you become more self-aware of what’s important to you and to help you achieve your “best self.”  Therapy is a process, and there is no guarantee as to how long each person will take to reach their personal goal(s) and their “best self.”  It is important throughout the therapeutic process to assess progress made toward reaching your personal goal(s).  Therapy is a personal journey and takes courage to take the first step.  I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about therapy or my approach to therapy should you have any question.
