Service Expertise


What is your mental health treatment philosophy & approach?

My treatment philosophy is a nuanced blend of evidence-based practices, compassionate listening, and a dash of humor when appropriate. I believe in tailoring interventions to each individual, integrating therapeutic modalities that address the biological, chemical, and psychosocial aspects of mental health. Essentially, it’s a bit like crafting a personalized mental health cocktail, minus the umbrella but with a generous pour of empathy
