What is your style/approach to therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my preferred practice often times drawing in from other modalities as needed depending on where the client is. I aim for Strengths-based goal driven, Short term Solution-focused, and Client-Centered approaches while obtaining client perspective and feedback throughout the course of services. My goal is to facilitate and empower you towards improved functioning, with self-discovery/reflection through psychodynamic practice using honest non judgmental, and compassionate services. 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.
