Director of Clinical Services (Huntington) – MS Ed, LMFT
“Experience has taught me that individuals have different needs in therapy based on life experiences and therapy is a collaborative approach to assist one in meeting treatment goals. My goal is to explore, with you, problem areas in your life and to work together to promote self-growth and healing.
My experience includes working with childhood related disorders, mood disorders, addictions, abuse and neglect, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. My approach in therapy is based on cognitive-behavioral concepts, as I believe that one can change how they feel by challenging their thoughts and feelings and learning to interpret life experiences in a mindful way. In addition to CBT approaches, I may augment sessions with motivational interviewing and dialectical behavior therapy. I am becoming certified to provide Trauma Focused CBT to assist individuals to heal from traumatic life experiences. I see clients in both our Huntington and Fort Wayne offices.”
