I meet the client where they are. My style is a combination of client-centered and evidence-based modalities. I work collaboratively with clients to develop goals and a treatment plan. I have worked in different milieus—domestic violence, child abuse, foster care, in-patient hospitals, and outpatient clinics where depression and anxiety were the common problems.
