I believe that therapy can be life changing if you allow it to be. I strive to create a supportive environment, uniquely tailored to each individual client. I help remind clients about the strengths they may have forgotten about during difficult times, and use these strengths to assist with the change process. I have been told that my insight and ability to “dig deep” are especially helpful with the healing process of therapy. I utilize both processing and also psychoeducation on skills to promote healing and change. All my approaches include trauma informed care, as well as cultural competency. I believe it is important to look at the symptoms, rather than the generalized diagnosis, and to honor each person’s right to autonomy. Some of the therapy modalities I utilize are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy and Positive Psychology. I am confident that my unique approach to therapy, combined with my skill set, can be a good match for you.

Services and Populations served
I provide individual therapy to adults, adolescents and children 16 years or older. I enjoy working with new patients from a variety of backgrounds. I prioritize building rapport and strengthening the therapeutic relationship from the initial assessment, while continuing to build rapport upon each session to follow. I typically recommend regular follow up appointments to ensure consistency and accountability, as well as continued support.
I am in the office Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and typically have availability during daytime hours.
