As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
Through my experience and training as a Mental Health Nutritionist, I have come to see how deeply our personal biochemistry affects our mood and behavior. I find that most of the time, we can find effective alternatives to psychiatric medication. I help my clients identify nutritionally based issues such as protein intake, blood sugar balance, food intolerances, or genetic issues in order to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, and even some psychotic symptoms. It is my experience that most complex disorders have both emotional and biochemical components to them. Therefore, we need to address both at approximately the same time to achieve relief most quickly.
