What is your style/approach to therapy?

I take a nonjudgmental compassionate approach to therapy and teach clients how to be factual rather than self critical.

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

I enjoy collaborating with other professionals and developing a team to support mutual clients. I often work with psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, PCP’s, and other therapists.
