I specialize in trauma, substance abuse, women's issues, significant mental illness, emotional dysregulation and relationship dysfunction. My main approach is person-centered treatment. Discussing treatment plans collaboratively is an important part of the therapeutic journey. I incorporate motivational interviewing in sessions to help feel "unstuck" from a current situation as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach to change thinking patterns. I have an eclectic technique to apply different evidence-based practices to what the person needs during their treatment.
