My Approach

My approach is to focus not only on an individual, but the broader environment in which the individual lives. For example, a flower’s ability to grow is not just dependent on the flower’s personal qualities and abilities, but also the soil in which it was planted, the climate, and how often it is being watered.

My approach is to also utilize evidence-based practices, which means that the interventions and assessment measures I use are based on strong research evidence that they are effective for many people. My therapeutic orientation is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) meaning I focus on how someone’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors impact each other, and I typically focus on helping individuals to make changes in one or more of these areas.
