My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed therapist dedicating my practice to working with clients who are pre-teens, teens, college-age, or in early adulthood dealing with depression, anxiety, life transitions, peer relationship issues, emotional regulation & frustration tolerance, and living with ADHD.

I approach my care with my clients from an integrative approach, with my primary approaches being HumanisticRogerian, Psychodynamic, and DBT. My focus is to provide a supportive, compassionate space for you to explore and try new coping skills & heal. I have tailored my approaches to also be genuine and real, and often use humor to help us connect and build our relationship. We build up your motivation & self-esteem together so you can feel more like yourself as days go by, and everything is done with the thought of it being "neurodivergent-friendly."
