I strive to provide evidence-based treatment, while also meeting my clients where they are and treating them as the expert of their experience. My style can be described as warm and laid-back. It is my goal to get to know each person I work with deeply so I can tailor treatment to fit their individual needs. I tend to utilize CBT and/or DBT strategies in most sessions.
