Philosophy & Approach: I use a blend of different therapeutic techniques, adapted to each individual, including cognitive behavioral therapy; dialectical behavior therapy, play-based, expressive arts, and sand tray activities to facilitate emotional processing; and EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing). There may be risks and benefits involved in all of these types of therapy. If you ever have a question or concern about my methods, please ask me about it.
