I use a strength-based, positive, and solution-focused model, treating the whole person as a unique individual, Goals are set together. Goals will include measuring improvements in life functioning rather than simply increasing medications. Healthy behaviors, like exercise, nutrition, relationships, mindfulness, and holistic treatments are included in care plans.
I specialize in working with adult and adolescent clients who need an active, balanced, and mindful approach to improving their overall health.
