My Approach

A warm, supportive, therapeutic relationship is the foundation for development and growth. I utilize a combination of empathic listening, humor, and playfulness to connect with clients. My approach is client-centered, collaborative, and tailored to the developmental stage, presenting symptoms and goals of the individual.


Working from a primarily cognitive-behavioral (CBT) orientation, I draw from my experience and training in a variety of evidence-based interventions, including:

  • Collaborative Problem Solving

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (DNA-V for youth)

  • Social Thinking

  • Zones of Regulation

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy

  • Exposure and Response Prevention

  • Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE)
