This type of trusting environment motivates the exploration of self and enables individuals to reach their full personal potential.

My Therapy Style

I have worked over 20 years as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. My approach to therapy is based on the idea that the most important ingredient in psychotherapy is the relationship that develops between the therapist and the patient. The patient must feel comfortable, safe and understood. This type of trusting environment motivates the exploration of self and enables individuals to reach their full personal potential (self-actualization). I draw upon evidence-based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness. Goals for therapy may include (changing behaviors; improving relationships with friends or family; managing depression, anxiety, or anger; increasing motivation, decreasing self-destructive behaviors; and developing healthy coping strategies for life).
