Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
My style in therapy is welcoming, direct, and strength-based. I meet clients where they are to help them deal with difficult and painful moments. I work as a team with clients to assure them that things will get better and they will be able to heal over time.

Playing with my kids, dog, watching baseball, playing fantasy football, fishing, gardening, raising worms, traveling, reading manga, watching anime, and playing golf.
I have read Jujutsu Kaisen over and over. I enjoy this manga so much.
I watch anime, read books and play with my kids.
I have a dog, fish, chickens, and worms. I love that my dog Bluey does naughty things when I'm not watching. He is not allowed on the sofas and will not get on the sofa if we are home. He will sit on all the sofas when we are not home and he quickly gets off when we are arriving home.
