“I have learned over the years that my biggest attribute as a therapist is that I really do care about my clients. It isn’t easy to tell someone your life story … and I don’t take that for granted. I work hard to help people identify their strengths and to build upon them. I use a technique called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help people build coping skills to battle any life problem they are experiencing. I am trained in Solution Focused Therapy, Brief Modalities, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. In addition to my formal training, I have a significant amount of life experience that has made me a better therapist.”
