Profile
“I believe every behavior serves a function and every person and family comes with a unique set of strengths.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Taking the first step to seek help takes courage. I understand on a personal and professional level how difficult and overwhelming these first steps can be. My main priority is to create a setting where you feel comfortable, understood, and free to express yourself. Having worked as a therapist in a variety of settings (in-home, schools, clinics), I am familiar with the many challenges children and young adults face as well as the ways in which larger systems fail to meet individual needs. My experiences outside of traditional office settings have helped me understand where typical strategies may fall short.
What should someone know about working with you?
I don't believe in "one-size-fits-all" treatment and will work to customize a plan unique to you and your family. Sessions will typically occur on a weekly basis, especially in the beginning. This allows us to establish a clear understanding of your unique strengths and goals.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe every behavior serves a function and every person and family comes with a unique set of strengths. Therapy is not about “fixing” you or your children; it’s about utilizing your strengths as individuals and/or as a family to find more effective ways of addressing your needs, learning new skills, gaining new perspectives, and moving toward a higher level of gratification in life.
