I have been working in the community mental health field for more than 22 years now, and most recently have been working as a clinical supervisor for staff working with those on the autism spectrum or with intellectual disabilities. I have enjoyed the recent shift in our field towards virtual therapy - more than I thought I would, to be honest. My therapeutic approach is very person-centered. I will take your lead and adapt as needed, but I find I tend towards the more cognitive- behavioral approaches. More than anything, being a therapist has taught me that everyone has a story, we are all a work in progress, and there’s no such thing as “normal.” We all need help sometimes, and I would be happy to be that help, if I am able.
