Approach to Therapy: I have an integrative approach to therapy, utilizing aspects of client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy and insight oriented therapies. I believe exploring our families of origin can help us understand where distorted patterns of thinking and behaving originated. I want to help students become more aware of their distorted thought patterns and behaviors. During counseling sessions, students can gain coping skills to help them better navigate their emotions and make healthy decisions. I hope to create an environment of mutual respect and foster personal growth. Change can be both challenging and rewarding. I look forward to navigating these challenges with you.
