My Approach To Therapy


I practice under an overarching humanistic perspective which means that I believe each person is unique and should be treated as such. When someone enters the therapeutic relationship with me, they can expect to feel a sense of unconditional acceptance, understanding about where they are at in life, and a partner in their journey to meet their personal goals for change. While my overarching perspective is humanistic, I feel it is extremely important to integrate various forms of evidence based intervention into one’s treatment based on individual needs. As such, one must examine both the internal (biological, thinking patterns, etc) and external factors (environment, experiences, etc) within a person’s world to truly understand how to pursue treatment. Taking these factors into consideration, I am able to work with each person to create a plan that includes facets of various forms of evidence based treatment. When working with people who have experienced early life trauma and/or neglect, I also utilize the Neurosequential Model and attachment theory to help the person and/or families understand the impact these experiences can have on brain functioning so that a developmentally sensitive and holistic treatment plan can be created.
