Marriage & Family Therapy Intern
Hi! I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern (IMF89937) supervised by a licensed clinician. My training includes individual, group, and family therapy in mental health clinics, summer camps and on a high school campus. My therapy approach is flexible and I use client strengths and natural resources while employing various techniques from dialectical behavior therapy, solution focused therapy and mindfulness. I emphasize a holistic approach to wellness and I believe in healing the mind-body-spirit connection to achieve optimal mental health. We all have the ability to change and I want to empower clients to regain strength and hope to create the lives they want to live. Aside from my work I enjoy exploring outdoors, yoga and live music.
