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. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

In therapy, I strive to create a safe environment because I understand that seeking help can be uncomfortable and perhaps difficult. After all, therapy is about change and growth. In our sessions, we can develop a collaborative relationship focused on empowering you and helping you develop the emotional agility you need to manage your life in a way that satisfies you. I will bring a respectful, client-focused style and curiosity to explore your goals and motivations to our relationship. I will also bring a holistic perspective and knowledge of a variety of modalities including CBT, DBT, ACT, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic and Mindfulness. However, you are the expert on you; no one knows you as well as you do. You will bring that knowledge, that expertise, as well as a willingness to explore your goals, motivations and even ambivalence to our collaborative relationship. Together we can develop a map, and I will help you travel to your destination.
