“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”
Therapy is an investment. You invest your time, money, and emotions in this work. What evidence do you have to suggest that it will work? I was trained in a scientist-practitioner model, which means that my clinical work is informed by scientific research identifying those methods that have been shown to be most effective in objective studies. I base much of my work on an approach to psychotherapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy which is firmly grounded in scientific theory and backed by empirical research. I have a strong interpersonal and relational focus in my work. My belief is that psychotherapy is an art and a science. At the heart of my practice is a compassion for those with whom I work, a care and presence that cannot be learned from books. However, my work is also firmly grounded in science that guides my interventions and treatment plans.
