​Treatment Philosophy

I take a person centered approach to therapy with the goal of exploring and building upon strengths as opposed to focusing on deficits. While many problems may seem similar, each is unique to the individual and therefore must be treated as such. I am a firm believer that culture and environment play a role in both the concern and the solution, and must always be considered and approached with respect.
