Message to clients
"So much of therapy is about feeling comfortable and safe, and having a relationship with your therapist that you're comfortable with, and that's my focus here. My goal is to help you meet your needs and to tailor my work for you to be successful, and I do that in an honest, safe space. It takes a lot of courage to come and see a therapist but if you're interested, I look forward to getting to know you and helping you on your path to getting to know yourself better."

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

Helping with a variety of concerns, the therapy has been recommended for depression, anxiety and eating disorders. (learn more)

Motivational interviewing Motivational interviewing is a form of collaborative conversation for strengthening a person's own motivation and commitment to change. It is a person-centered counseling style for addressing the common problem of ambivalence about change by paying particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen an individual's motivation for and movement toward a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person's own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.
