Professional Interests/Specialties

It is a great privilege to be invited into people's personal struggles. I am grateful that people trust me with their private stories and allow me to partner with them in treatment. An important part of this privilege is to understand that people enter therapy at various stages of change readiness. It is critically important to meet people where they are at. Together we work in small incremental steps towards the therapeutic goals.

Goals are defined by the individual and indicate to us when therapy is at an ending point. Results in therapy are as important as relationships. The quality of the relationship with the psychologist has been shown to be very important. It is an important
prerequisite not the mechanism for change. Evidence-based treatments are the mechanisms for change. Evidence-based means that there is research that shows the particular treatment works for your age and your particular presenting concerns. EBTs are the treatments you want and deserve. You can and should expect results from therapy.

Another critically important part of therapy is coordination and collaboration with family members and medical care professionals. Different perspectives help create a fuller
picture of the issue, and contribute to the solutions. Coordination with medical professionals run the gamut from phone calls and faxes to transdisciplinary teams where the psychologist is integrated into the medical practice. This is called Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) and is a method to treating the whole patient, including mind and body. IBH is a particular interest area for me both clinically and theoretically.
