My Approach to Helping
In therapy, I use a holistic, empathetic and non-judgmental approach. I also focus on relationship building and trust to create a setting in which clients can work towards their goals and progress. My key areas of clinical experience include anxiety and depression, coping with trauma and abuse, anger issues, crisis intervention, drug and alcohol use, self-injurious behavior, sexual identity, body imageeating disorders, life transitions, and concerns related to outside stressors such as work, relationships or school.
For five years, I have worked as a school-based counselor providing counseling to adolescents. As I move into private practice, I am broadening my client work to families, couples and individual (adolescent and adults). I am particularly interested in working with mothers and their perinatal mental health.
