I believe the most effective and efficient treatment starts with finding a therapist who is a good fit for your symptoms, goals, and needs in therapy. A good fit between therapist and client allows for a strong therapeutic relationship to develop and for the therapy space to feel safe, supportive, and effective while challenging you to face the roadblocks between you and the life you want to be living. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship allows for authenticity, vulnerability, and deeper exploration of your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and that these components foster personal growth, long term change, and recovery. The therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone of therapy and a crucial part of treatment success, particularly in complex cases.
In addition to the relationship I develop with each of my clients, I rely on my training, clinical experience, and expertise in treating mood, relational, and eating disorders to provide effective, research driven treatment in each therapy session. I often work with clients who are struggling with more than one problem area and use a transdiagnostic approach to treatment. This allows me to focus on you as an individual and build an action plan that addresses multiple problem areas simultaneously through combining evidence-based treatment, skills training, exposure therapy, and solution focused interventions.
