Areas of Specialty


This style of therapy can be short or long-term in length. It generally does not deal with SMI (Serious Mental Illness) and refers to “coaching” individuals through troublesome points of their lives. Problems may be related to work, school, family, or any other area that is causing distress. While there is no upper-age limit, clients are usually at least 13 years of age.

Solution-Focused Therapy:

This therapy is usually short-term and can be a cost-effective option for patients paying out-of-pocket. It is very goal-oriented and treatment generally last between 6-12 sessions. Patients usually—but certainly not always— have some sort of idea regarding potential answers to a problem, but may need a professional’s help in narrowing down the solution most congruent with their life goals.

While these are the two therapeutic modalities I engage in most often, I definitely recognize that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all model of treatment. Different styles work better with different personalities and at times it may even be best to combine techniques or switch to something altogether different. Both of these(and many other treatment styles) can treat a variety of ailments such as depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, grief, and trauma. I definitely consider myself to be an eclectic practitioner and will work with you to craft a counseling experience that best meets your needs.
