Starting counseling with a new therapist can be intimidating, so I want to take the time to tell you about myself and my approach to counseling. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) with extensive experience with working with individuals, couples, and families. I take a collaborative role to counseling and individualize treatment to fit your unique needs. Below are some areas of expertise:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Being trained in a variety of therapy methods means I can take an eclectic approach to treatment and understand your mental health journey is unique to you and treatment should be tailored to meet those needs.
I also take a holistic approach to counseling. I believe that there can be various factors capable of influencing our emotions and behaviors. These influences can be environmental, lifestyle, spiritual, economical, etc. By seeing things holistically, I believe that we will be able to reach long term resolutions as opposed to only addressing situational challenges.
