With over 9 years of clinical practice experience working in a variety of outpatient treatment settings, Tyler has worked with diverse client populations while using an eclectic Person-Centered therapeutic approach tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Psychodynamics, Tyler hopes to assist clients in enhancing their effectiveness in managing life stressors while strengthening their ability to cope with personal challenges in a therapeutic space that allows for free expression of feelings and emotions.
A foundation of Tyler’s practice is to normalize the experience of receiving therapy to create maximum comfortability in the therapeutic process and reduce stigma or barriers clients may encounter while obtaining additional supports for their current needs.
Whether you are seeking assistance for common everyday stressors or broader emotional concerns, Tyler is eager to participate in your personal exploration and improvement of life’s current obstacles.
