My Approach to Helping

I strive for my clients to feel heard, understood, validated and supported as we collaboratively navigate your challenges. Both what and how you communicate to me are incredibly important, and my goal is to build on that in our work to make the changes you wish to see in your life. I prioritize understanding my clients’ individual needs, preferences, and motivations, expressly stated or not, and tailor my evidence-based practices with those considerations in mind.

In my bones, I am a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, which simply means I a) prioritize the viewpoint of looking at ourselves and others through the interactions between our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and physical sensations, and b) believe that focusing on our thoughts and behaviors allows for the most meaningful change in a time-limited way (in months, not years). I build on this foundation with third-wave cognitive-behavioral treatments like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which also consider our feelings and values in a more equitable way and utilizes mindfulness to do so. I also have a background in family systems and integrative behavioral couple therapy and thus also incorporate relationship dynamics into conceptualizing the fuller picture of your life.
