Hello, thanks again for checking out my website. My counseling style is down-to Earth, caring, non-judgmental, and supportive. I personalize the counseling experience based on each client's needs and strengths utilizing techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). I have specialized training to work with OCD and related disorders utilizing exposure and response prevention (ERP) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) . I really enjoy helping people identify their strengths and challenge thought patterns that are limiting or unhealthy. I also enjoy helping people find ways to insert humor into their daily lives and reconnect with what is most important. Life can be stressful or overwhelming and sometimes a good laugh can help shift our perspective.
When I'm not in the office I enjoy going on adventures with my family.
