I strongly believe that the relationship itself is the most important part of the clinical connection that client and therapist have. A trusting, honest and genuine relationship in and of itself is healing. Without trust and compassion, it's hard to engage in learning and practicing therapeutic skills. Therefore I strive to build a healthy relationship with all my clients as a core foundation to treatment.
Humans have a natural desire to connect and feel belongings.... So much of the healing and the pain I see in clients comes from issues related to relationships and lack of relationships. Due to this, I strive to provide an honest and compassionate clinical relationship for my clients. One that is non-judgmental and safe. I provide an eclectic approach to therapy but most of my training is in working with belief systems. I feel that what we believe and how we perceive the world and our place in it as much to do with our own joy and sadness. I try to work with my clients to adjust their thinking and find the origins of the beliefs that hinder their ability to have a joyful life.
I believe that much of my personality comes out in my approach to working with clients. I am a genuinely down to earth person who appreciates the fact we all go through ups and downs in life. I am also someone who isn't afraid to laugh at myself or see myself as a work in progress. When working with clients, I try to use compassion, humor (when appropriate) and skill all while being myself.
Throughout my career as a therapist, I have had the opportunity to work in a number of unique settings. I spend six years working as the assistant clinical director for a therapeutic boarding school treating teenagers and their families. I additionally worked with teens in a wilderness therapy program. Most recently, I have been working in the private practice setting with adults, teens and families.
