What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have 14 years of professional experience in various clinical areas: crisis, case management, medical social work, community (program implementation), inpatient psychiatric hospital, conservatorship (adult residential), clinical therapy (mental/behavioral health), family health advocate (public health), developmental disabilities, and mental health court (forensics). I thrive on assisting the underserved and generally all who desire holistic health. I approach treatment open-minded and most importantly open-hearted, ready to connect with people who desire change and meaning. I meet you where you are at and am equipped to ride along to assist with reaching desired outcomes. I have an eclectic approach to practice, pulling from different modalities to meet each individual need presented. I work to help elicit and support goal establishment and completion, preparing for the fulfillment of desired outcomes. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
