My Philosophy

To create a safe, open environment where we can work together to meet your therapeutic goals.

I utilize a philosophy of therapy called “Collaborative Care,” which is working together with you to identify specific treatment goals. We will work to utilize your strengths and knowledge in conjunction with the strengths and experience that I bring as a therapist to achieve your goals.
