Therapy Philosophy
Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world…as in being able to remake ourselves.-- Mahatma Gandhi
​ 
My style of therapy can be best described as integrative. This means that I do not rely solely on one method, but incorporate several techniques and theories. I find that it is best to not hold firmly to one idea but instead adapt the methods to each unique client instead of adapting each client to one single approach. 

With that said, I believe that a truly integrative therapist must be solidly grounded in one or two theoretical orientations in order to work effectively. My training had a strong focus on Psychodynamic therapy, which I use most frequently and believe to deliver the most enduring changes. Additionally, I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Positive Psychology. Incorporating these three theories provides for a well-rounded and unique therapy experience. 

Below I will provide a brief description of each by clicking on the links.
