Philosophy of Care
Most marriage and family therapists believe a wide range of individual problems must be understood within the context of the family and social environments. I believe in this systems approach to mental and emotional problems and have the goal to change problematic, repetitive interactions that contribute to the presenting problem. As a trauma informed therapist, I am aware of the long-lasting effects of childhood trauma and will explore that using a narrative therapy approach. Our goal for therapy is the reduce distress and improve functionality. In what ways are you feeling not OK? Let’s help you start feeling OK.
