Therapeutic Approach

Therapy with me will start with an intake so that I can better understand how your anxiety is interfering with your life. Moreover, I want to know what your life could be like once you regain control over your worries.

Once you've expressed your goals for therapy, we will work together to develop your treatment plan, one that will challenge you to be your best self, but within a safe environment.

I will take an active approach to meet your therapy goals, using only evidence-based practices (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior management, behavioral family therapy) to reduce your anxiety.

I promise to be empathic throughout our time together, carefully listening to your struggles and considering your therapeutic goals. I'm a strong believer that trust is the cornerstone of effective therapy, and I will always be effortful in showing you that I understand and care.
