My general approach to therapy is structural and behavioral in nature. Depending on the unique needs to the client, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, and mindfulness may be used. Family systems approach informs my conceptualization and treatment of presenting issues. In addition, I offer Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for disruptive behaviors in young children. I am also trained in and use trauma focused treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I am also trained in the Gottman approach to marriage counseling.
