Occupational Therapist in Scottsdale, AZ
I’m unapologetically abortion positive. You will never feel judged in my practice. I respect all choices and options related to reproductive health: the right to make a choice in reproductive health is primary. I’m an advocate for family size choice: whether you never have children, are ‘one and done’ or have made any other family size decisions- I am supportive and helpful in methods to handle ambivalence or frank resistance to your choices- either imposed by yourself or others in your life.
Anxiety is a quality of life drain. I provide real-life, applicable treatment for anxiety. I want to help you start finding and using coping skills to manage more effectively day to day.
Using my years of acute medical training, in combination with my physical rehabilitation training as an OT: I am a highly effective match for chronic pain or illness. OT is uniquely effective for managing life around the corners of chronic issues. Don’t give up— the help I offer is real and it works.
As an Occupational Therapist, I view people as individuals, not diagnoses. My approach is holistic in that all areas of concern are addressed with you through the lens of what’s affecting your daily function and quality of life. We look for ways to collaboratively solve issues or for ways that you can live alongside these issues in your daily life while still finding quality in your life.
As an individual practicing therapist, I use DBT as a framework to help people feeling distress to manage their lives more effectively through various emotional regulation skills. DBT dovetails well with Occupational Therapy in its strong orientation towards skills and training to manage difficult times.
ACT is incredibly effective for management of all forms of distress. I’ve founded it so useful in helping clients manage difficult circumstances. I’m a dedicated mindfulness and meditation practitioner in my own life, and I enjoy helping my clients find their way towards a more peaceful life using the concepts of ACT to help.
