I further believe that everyone is capable of becoming healthier, happier versions of themselves. To help individuals achieve this, I may use several approaches: CBT, psychotherapy, mindfulness, play and more. Although, I advocate the use of evidence-based practices whenever possible, my approaches to therapy may be eclectic or tailored to suit the specific needs of each individual or family.
