I consider myself an integrative therapist. This means I use several different approaches in working with a client.
I do not have any “techniques” per se as each client is different regardless of what brought them to therapy. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is our therapeutic alliance.
My Ph.D. program emphasized the unconscious which is considered a psychodynamic mode of therapy. In addition to these principles, I also utilize humanistic approaches as well as cognitive and behavioral methods.
I have been in practice since 2012 and I really enjoy supporting clients in finding meaning and contentment in their lives.
