Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family.

My primary goal in therapy is to create a trusting, safe, non-judgmental environment that allows you to process and explore what is keeping you from reaching your own personal goals. I use an eclectic approach dependent uponyour presenting issues and goals to ensure I am meeting your expectations for therapy. This can include cognitive-behavioral techniques to change negative thought patterns, relaxation exercises to cope more effectively with stress, or analysis of your role in the various systems (e.g. family, work) in which you exist to determine what you can and cannot control in those systems. I have worked solely in an outpatient setting providing therapy and testing to children, adolescents, and adults for the last 5 years. I have a special interest in whole body health acknowledging that our emotional health does not exist and cannot progress without addressing physical and environmental health.
