I work with each client using a blend of approaches and interventions that are most appropriate to the individual, situation, and worldview.
In therapy, I evaluate my clients' understanding of themselves, relationships, physical health, and systems in which they live (i.e., work, relationships with nature, religious institutions, school, etc.) so I can individualize treatment instead of just using a "one size fits all" therapy approach. I also make sure to attend to my client's mind, body, and spirit throughout therapy. It is my belief that if any of those facets of life are not healthy, then the person may not be functioning to his or her full potential. If needed, I am open to suggesting appropriate medical referrals to rule out any biological reasons for the presenting problem, and support the client's desire to use complementary medicine such as meditation, massage, and acupuncture. My goal for those who wish to use medications is to have a collaborative relationship with his or her psychiatrist and other medical health professionals.
Individuals who want to understand the nature of their, or their child's, difficulties focusing, behavior, concentrating, learning (reading, writing, math, etc.), organizing, procrastinating, losing things, motivation, and getting tasks and schoolwork started or completed can request an ADHD/learning disability assessment. A comprehensive psychoeducational assessment will help identify the nature of your or your child's difficulties and provide suggested ways to improve functioning, while also providing the required documentation to get helpful accommodations in work, school, and higher education.

To ensure coverage, I can verify your benefits for you. As a courtesy, I will bill your insurance company for reimbursement as you pay in full for your sessions if you have mental health benefits with any PPO insurance plan.
