Personal Information:

Clinical Approach:
I develop my clinical approach based on the individual needs of each client I serve, and will typically combine several different therapeutic approaches to best serve the needs of the client in a way that will facilitate personal growth and wellness. I am influenced by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing, while also combining the skill building approach of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). It is my belief that every client served desires wellness in their personal lives and is capable of achieving wellness.


Clinical Interests:
I work with adolescents who have experienced difficulty managing their use of substances and have experienced problematic consequences as a result of substance use.


Personal Interests:
I enjoy being able to travel, seeing as many different places and experiencing as many different things as I can. I am a lover of all dogs, however, my puppy holds a special place in my heart, I enjoy playing with him, taking him for walks and spending quality time snuggling on the couch. I enjoy experimenting with trying out new recipes to cook and will never turn down a good book.
