Therapeutic Approach

My therapeutic approach is somewhat eclectic with a foundation in evidenced-based practices. I will conduct an initial assessment and work with the individual or family to determine what the best therapeutic approach is for the desired results of each individual or family. I believe it is very important to consider individual’s unique needs, experiences and culture when developing a plan for treatment.

Special Considerations for Adolescents
When working with adolescents, I often use a systemic approach. Working collaboratively with family members and other support systems involved in an adolescent’s life is often essential to gaining and maintaining progress. However, I also consider adolescents’ increasing need for independence and privacy. I work closely with the family and the adolescent to establish these boundaries early in the therapeutic process.
