As a therapist, I have the privilege of getting to know and work with people from all walks of life. Some people are feeling a little more depressed than they used to, or more anxious, or angry. Others feel stuck, or hopeless, or really don't know how they feel. Some feel they don't have a voice; some hear voices that sometimes upset them, or believe things that others don't understand. I also work with some people who find they want to drink or use drugs less, or not at all, and others that are involved with the criminal justice system.
My clinical services are grounded in a respectful openness to people and their experiences. I practice with the evidence-based assumption that the therapy relationship is the chassis of the treatment. While I have received training, supervision, and education in a variety of contemporary psychotherapeutic traditions, and from a diversity of experts, my approach is probably best described as humanistic-dynamic-existential.
COMPREHENSIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION
As an evaluator, I appropriately use relevant, reliable, and valid methods for clarifying diagnostic impressions and developing formulations that empower people and others involved in the overall clinical effort.
CONSULTATION AND TRAINING
Case-specific and program-level consultation and training for facilitating the development of recovery-oriented and trauma-informed knowledge and skills for clinicians and clinical teams working in a variety of clinical and forensic treatment settings.
