GREETINGS, NICE TO MEET YOU!

I use humor when appropriate. I am caring and compassionate. I also utilize self-care with all clients as everyone can benefit from learning self-care skills. I like using various treatment models as one does not work for everyone. I enjoy using Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), some of the easier skills in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Self-care activities, Seeking Safety and Matrix curriculum.
