I feel therapy is a place where I get to know my Clients and make great progress. I have a special relationship with many of my Clients and hope to have this relationship with all of them. I use Brief Solution Based Therapy with all my Clients. I am a positive person and prefer to choose on solutions rather than problems, as Brief Solution Based Therapy does. If a theory or modality other than Brief Solution Focused Therapy is more appropriate for the Client, I will use the more appropriate theory or modality.
My Professional Background
I completed my internship at Mesilla Valley Psychiatric Hospital, where I gained experience on the acute, adult acute, adolescent acute, geriatric, IOP, and rehab/recovery units. I have worked in outpatient, inpatient, day treatment, RTC, rehab/recovery, and online/app settings.
