Over 6 years of clinical experience treating:
- Sex Addiction
- Eating Disorders
- Process Addictions
- Substance abuse
I practice individual, group, couples and family therapy to adolescents, teens, and adults. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety to couples counseling and marriage and family therapy. With five years of experience in substance abuse, addiction, eating disorders, trauma, life changes, and mood disorders, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients and their individual needs.
Rooted in Carl Rodgers’ person-centered approach, I believe in unconditional positive regard and empathy for my clients, the journey they are on and the personal growth that they are striving for. Using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), I work with clients on modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and thoughts by identifying and challenging negative, irrational beliefs which may be rooted in childhood trauma. CBT encourages clients to recognize how powerful their thoughts can be and the impact they have upon their behaviors and emotions. Together, we work on changing those destructive patterns.
In the last two years, I have expanded my practice to include Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. Most of my experience as a Lead Analyst has been focused on helping individuals who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and/or other Behavioral or Mental Disorders. My goal is to target behavioral difficulties through the use of data analysis and implement behavior modification to ensure that my client masters important skills necessary to achieve their highest potential. I also specialize in providing caregiver training, helping parents and other caregivers learn how to best support the client and increase their independence and functioning. Overall, my focus as a therapist is on creating a safe, positive, nurturing, and supportive environment where I can help my clients make their emotional well-being their priority. I am honored to walk alongside them throughout their therapeutic journey.
