In Central Time

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am very easy-going. I try to bring that same relaxed, stress-less vibe into my therapy space. This is particularly important for my clients with anxiety. Therapy should not contribute to stress, even if it is challenging.

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

I often collaborate with medical providers and/or recovery counselors to provide continuity of care.

How has your particular field of specialization evolved in recent years and how has that impacted your work?

In recent years, I have learned to treat people with substance abuse and addiction. I have always been competent at treating depression and anxiety and I have found that depression and anxiety are almost always at the root of addiction. So, my addiction work still heavily involves the treatment of depression and anxiety.
