Approach to Therapy
I have an eclectic therapeutic orientation and often use Mindfulness Practice, EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, The Nurtured Heart Approach, and Reality Therapy. I feel it is important to honor each individual from their unique personal identity and cultural experience with a nonjudgmental stance. I use a holistic approach and often work from the biopsychosocial model to address the systemic nature of health and functioning. I enjoy positive psychology and prefer to focus less on pathology and more on solutions, strengths, and resources.
