‘I utilize Mindfulness-Based Therapy because it may be useful in altering affective and cognitive processes that underlie multiple clinical issues. Mindfulness meditation can increase positive affect and decrease anxiety and negative affect’

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

‘Of all the talking therapies, CBT has the most clinical evidence to show that it works and
is considered widely as the “gold standard”. Studies have shown that it is at least as
effective as medication for many types of depression and anxiety disorders. But unlike
many drugs, there are few side effects with CBT’

Gottman Therapy

‘Gottman Therapy: Passed level 1, 2, and 3. Gottman Therapy is a research based therapy that aims to help couples build stronger relationships. Many couples benefit from the Gottman approach, with Gottman therapists being able to predict the success of a relationship with approximately 92 to 94% accuracy. Therefore, the Gottman method is one of the most popular types of therapy for people wanting to increase intimacy and relationship satisfaction.’

Narrative Therapy

‘There is a significant and ever-increasing amount of evidence for the effectiveness for narrative therapy practices. I personally love the empowerment that narrative therapy provides my patients by enabling them to see that they truly are the authors of their life story and I can assist them in writing a new chapter in their lives’

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Insomnia (CBTI)

‘I received certification and training in CBTI therapy. CBTI can effectively treat insomnia, in fact, it is the first treatment recommended. CBTI helps you find out which thoughts and behaviors cause sleep problems or make them worse and provide the right treatment to support sound sleep. Unlike sleeping pills, CBTI helps you overcome the causes of your sleep problems. CBTI may be a good treatment choice if you have long term sleep problems or you're worried about becoming dependent on sleep medicines.’

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

‘Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD). The patient populations for which DBT has the most empirical support include parasuicidal women with borderline personality disorder (BPD), but there have been promising findings for patients with BPD and substance use disorders (SUDs), persons who meet criteria for binge-eating disorder, and depressed elderly patients’

Positive Psychology

‘Positive psychology is the study of happiness, flourishing, and what makes life worth living. Together, we will consider five factors as leading to well-being — positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning and purpose, and accomplishment’

Christian Counseling

‘I am a Christian. I believe that faith can provide support, encouragement, instill hope, teach forgiveness, provide tolerance, assist with change, fill the gaps of brokenness, complete our individual purpose, motivate, and diminish stress in our lives’

Compassion Focused (CFT)

‘Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) aims to help promote mental and emotional healing by encouraging people in treatment to be compassionate toward themselves and other people. Compassion, both toward the self and toward others, is an emotional response believed by many to be an essential aspect of well-being’

Culturally Sensitive

‘Culturally sensitive therapy emphasizes understanding of your background, ethnicity, and belief system. I incorporate cultural sensitivity into my work to accommodate and respect differences in opinions, values, and attitudes of various cultures and different types of people’


‘Existential psychotherapy is a style of therapy that places emphasis on the human condition as a whole. 

Existential psychotherapy uses a positive approach that applauds human capacities and aspirations while simultaneously acknowledging human limitations’

Family Systems

‘Family systems therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. Each family member works together with the others to better understand their group dynamic and how their individual actions affect each other and the family unit as a whole. One of the most important premises of family systems therapy is that what happens to one member of a family happens to everyone in the family’


‘Humanistic psychological therapies are based on the premise that people are ‘self-actualizing’, that is, they have an inherent tendency to develop their potential (Rogers 1951Maslow 1970). Other defining characteristics of humanistic therapies include the belief that people are self-aware, are free to choose how they will live, are responsible for the choices they make, and are unique entities that need to be understood in the context of their individual experiences and characteristics (Cain 2002).


‘Integrative therapy is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. With an understanding of normal human development, I will modify standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy’

Motivational Interviewing

‘Motivational interviewing is a counseling method that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behavior. It is a practical, empathetic, and short-term process that takes into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes’


‘People who seek counseling come from different walks of life and from different backgrounds. Multicultural counseling is the ability to approach counseling through the context of the client's world. This is pivotal in achieving results through appropriate interventions and building a strong therapeutic relationship’
