About me

I am a marriage and family therapist with 6 years of experience working with co-occurring mental health disorders. I tend to use the eclectic approach with therapy that incorporates modalities of Cognitive behavioral therapy, Solution focus therapy, Narrative therapy, Strategic family therapy, and Emotion focused couples therapy. I have worked in residential treatment for 5 years helping restore functionality to daily living, when available helping reunification with family or support system, helping to identify and adapt to appropriate changes to help improve with quality of living. It is an important process of understanding deficits that interferes with emotional well-being, negative thought patterns, and our ability to manage day to day utilizing appropriate coping methods. It is my goal to help with learning alternative self-care activities, utilizing coping skills, and grounding techniques that could help us to function in the present moment. These are the basic fundamentals that are important through the healing process which could help improve your personal growth.
