To link to full bio please click on staff name:
I approach my work with the assumption that everyone has the capacity to change, if provided with the proper support and treatment.
I believe that no one is beyond help, no matter how severe the disorder or longstanding the mental health problems. I am a strong proponent of psychotherapeutic approaches which have scientific support for their effectiveness to ensure we are making the most of your time in therapy.
My goal is to help facilitate change, skill mastery, and acceptance; as well as to help develop insight into our abilities and capacity to cope with our most difficult challenges.
I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is a key component to successful therapy. My professional philosophy includes incorporating multiple therapeutic techniques in order to tailor therapy to the specific needs of my clients. I emphasize empowering my clients I the therapeutic environment and their lives. My therapeutic style includes a balance of validation and challenges to help clients grow to their full potential.
I believe in providing individuals with thoughtful, evidence-based assessments that answer the questions that are the most important to them and the people supporting their well-being. In addition to completing assessments, I oversee Canvas Health’s APA-accredited doctoral internship in psychology.
A psychological assessment is a collaborative team effort between an individual, their support network (family members, health care providers, teachers, case managers etc.), and the evaluator that can enhance therapeutic understanding, cohesion, and provide a framework to meet desired goals.
