I offer individual, couple and group therapy that provides a compassionate, culturally sensitive safe space. My approach is integrative, relational, solution focused, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), psychodynamic approaches, mindfulness and grounding techniques including meditation and breath work to facilitate change. Clients should expect an empathetic and direct approach utilizing client’s strengths, beliefs systems, and coaching to assist with developing areas of interest in their lives. My approach is person centered therapy utilizing client’s self determination, motivation, and resources to develop practical tools to improve their mental health, relationships and achieve goals. Clients have the option of therapy with an in depth holistic exploration of the mind, body, and spirit connections that effect overall wellness, including daily mood and life circumstances. This holistic exploration is done by assessing how environment, past experiences, beliefs systems, diet, substance use, daily activity, internal dialogue and various individual factors impact a person’s quality of life.
