Self-discovery and self-recovery is a journey, it takes courage. Starting from birth we enter life with curiosity about ourselves and our capabilities; about the world around us, and how we fit in. Sometimes this journey is seamless, sometimes we get bumps and bruises. Yet regardless of where we are, we can all use some help on our Insightful Direction. It is my great privilege to work with anyone who is eager to understand why they are the way they are and what we can collaboratively work on to feel whole and understood.

My 15 years of working with adolescents and their families has taught me to approach clients with a non-judgmental, non-authoritative attitude. This helps clients take an honest look at their lives and identify what things need to change or be accepted. Meeting a client without preconceived expectations is critical because it gives me a chance to see the client from her/his own point of view. Also, I work very hard to not act too 'therapisty,' which is something that often hinders therapy with adolescent clients in particular (e.g., 'How does that make you feel?').
Working at McLean Hospital's Residential Treatment program taught me how to meet the clients on their level, with the utmost respect, kindness, and humility. McLean's intensity, taught me to be human with clients and use my naturally curiosity, playfulness, and positive energy to connect with and help others.
I combine Motivational Interviewing (allows clients to identify THEIR OWN need for change), Humanistic Therapy (approaching clients with acceptance to allow them to feel safe enough to share their deepest most painful struggles), and CBT (identifying thoughts and behaviors that perpetuate the client's problem.
