That which is created in a relationship can be fixed in a relationship.
– Murray Bowen
I have a sincere passion for working systemically with families, couples and individuals. Trained at the Family Institute at Northwestern University, I utilize a multifaceted approach to treatment in order to help clients gain insight into their various behavioral, emotional, and thought processes. My preference is to work behaviorally and experientially while using the relationships in your life as a foundation. I believe that while our families may occasionally help to create barriers to our potential growth and development, they can also serve as a source of strength and healing.
In addition, I have received specialized clinical training in crisis intervention, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in order to become a well-rounded therapist who is comfortable treating a diverse clientele. This experience has led to my working with a large number of children, adults, and families addressing issues related to depression, anxiety, emotional distress and complex trauma. I also have intensive training providing group therapy and working with children and adolescents on issues surrounding life and relational transitions, self-esteem, and interpersonal effectiveness.
I strive to maintain a safe, empathic, and collaborative space for clients. This allows us to build an authentic therapeutic relationship that emphasizes acceptance, yet challenges the client in order to facilitate a deeper understanding and promote change. I seek to empower clients by helping them to establish goals, recognize potential constraints, and identify resources that will support them on the road to discovery. Rooted in a multicultural framework, I respect and value culturally diverse perspectives and interventions. Not only am I an LGBTQIA affirmative therapist, but also sensitive to issues of race/ethnicity, class, religion and how they may influence the therapeutic process.
