I have a very eclectic style to therapy. First, I am very person-centered. I believe it is important to develop a solid, trusting relationship in order to better understand and provide you with the appropriate environment to accomplish what you want in therapy. I am trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy. Together, we will talk about what therapy approach might work best for you. There is no right or wrong answer. The important piece is that you are able to make the changes you desire for your life.
I believe trust is a key component of the therapeutic relationship. Unless the client feels safe and heard, he/she will not be able to identify and discuss important issues bringing them to therapy. Being able to trust me as your therapist means knowing I will be honest and forthright in treatment and that I am listening to hear what you need from the relationship.
When determining therapy goals, I believe it is important to have a good understanding of what the individual is looking to gain or change with therapy. The first appointment will consist of getting to know you and your history and then set the therapy goal based on what you want. The goal may change during therapy and we will work together to identify and change goals as you reach some goals or develop new thoughts about what you want from therapy.

I've been fortunate in my career to work with individuals with a variety of backgrounds and issues. I have done work with individuals with serious mental illness, anxiety disorders, depression, and trauma. As an Army Veteran, I understand the military culture and while not a combat veteran, do understand trauma and how it affects one's ability to function in ways that were easy in the past. Whatever, the issue, I have training and experience to help you resolve the problems in ways that will help you function for the type of life you want. We will work together to find what will work for you and help you be the person you desire.
