 I take a holistic approach to therapy, and do not take a one size fits all approach.  I use an assortment of different modalities and theories to help you meet you goals and needs. I believe in constantly learning and do not limit myself.  I love giving book / podcast recommendations, sharing my knowledge on how the brain & trauma works, and being in the trenches with you.  I won't be a therapist who just nods and does not interact with you for the full session.  I WANT to see you grow and make changes you never thought possible! Below are just 3 examples of theories in which I do believe can benefit all clients and ones that I utilize in your healing & self-growth journey in counseling. 


my approach


Person Centered Therapy

Person Centered Therapy takes the approach that the most important part of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and client.  If there is not a safe space, change can literally not happen.  It is essential for me to hold a nonjudgemental & empathic lens for you to feel comfortable to show up as your true self. I center the experience of therapy on compassion and do not view you as flawed.  I want to emphasis your vulnerability to show up and have a desire to change and grow in your own personal journey.  I will show up alongside you, and help be your guide through change!


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a powerful technique that enhances awareness of negative thought patterns, empowering you to navigate life's challenges with greater resilience. It's rooted in the principle that our thoughts influence our feelings, which in turn affect our behavior. Often, we underestimate the impact of these negative thinking patterns on our lives. I find joy in educating my clients about 'Cognitive Distortions' and helping them recognize how their thoughts shape their emotions, behaviors, relationships, work, and personal goals. Witnessing clients become more mindful of their thoughts and responding, rather than reacting, to their experiences is truly rewarding.


Family Systems Theory

Family Systems Theory is the theory that underscores the significance of our family relationships in shaping our psychological well-being. Our formative years, particularly childhood, leave a mark on our self-esteem, self-concept, coping mechanisms, and perspectives on the world and others. As individuals, we don't exist in isolation; our family and school systems play pivotal roles in shaping who we are today. Together, we can explore how your upbringing, generational family patterns, or childhood trauma have influenced your present self. This journey of self-awareness paves the way for profound, conscious, and lasting change.
