My Approach To Therapy


I believe that a key component of therapy is finding an appropriate balance between having time and space to process your emotions and learning techniques to address your concerns. I recognize that each person is different and strive to understand your experiences and adjust therapy as needed through nonjudgmental and empathetic understanding, therapeutic collaboration, and ongoing feedback. Consistent with APA's guidelines, I integrate the best available research evidence, my clinical expertise, and your unique characteristics and preferences to help provide an effective, empirically supported, and individually tailored therapeutic experience.

My Approach To Evaluations   


Psychological assessments are an invaluable tool to help you or your child gain better insight into yourselves and your current functioning. I complete comprehensive evaluations by incorporating multiple sources of information to assess unique strengths, difficulties, and any diagnoses that might be warranted. I then use this information to determine next steps that can help you or your child receive appropriate support and reach full potential.
