Personal Philosophy

“I believe that change is always possible, and approach each client and their issues with this outlook.  I work primarily with clients using CBT or behavioral approaches, as this has been shown to be one of the most  effective therapeutic models; however, I work with clients individually and mold my therapeutic approach to best meet their needs.  I have a long history of working with children and adolescents with behavioral therapy needs.  I work diligently to create a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients and nurture a safe, open and trusting environment in order to aid them in facilitating change.”
