Clinical Interests

I remain interested in working with a wide range of clients. I am excited about the changes occurring in the field of therapy because of the growing knowledge of the workings of the brain and how psychological issues affect the body. Correct diagnosis is an important starting place for therapy and I love discovering what issues bring people into my office. I emphasize the necessity for a safe and supportive therapeutic environment and enjoy the process of building a good working relationship with my clients. I am interested in most issues that bring people to therapy and have extensive experience in working with anxiety, depression, issues related to traumatic experiences, people on the autism scale, bipolar disorder and people struggling with compulsive issues. I draw from a wide range of therapeutic strategies and use careful consideration when using any intervention. I believe that a good professional can explain the services they offer and I am happy to explain my thoughts and strategies regarding my services at any point during the therapy process.
