Theraputic Approach

Therapy is never the same for any two clients.
I tailor each session to build on your strengths and unique interests. We'll work together to gain coping skills and new insights and perspectives. To do this, I use and integrative therapeutic approach. I often incorporate techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) , family systems , positive psychology , play therapy , creative arts expression , and mind-body awareness (mindfulness) .
