My Approach to Helping
My approach balances having space for reflective growth while also identifying concrete skills and coping tools tailored to your unique goals. I draw from numerous modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused, and mindfulness.
More Info About My Practice
As someone with a visible difference, I know firsthand how hard it can be to overcome societal barriers and mental health struggles to reach self-acceptance. Growing up as a bald woman since age 4 has made me a strong advocate in the Alopecia community and a believer that uniqueness is beauty. In my spare time, I volunteer mentoring young girls who also have Alopecia through an organization called Baldtourage. Our differences are what make us special and helping normalize differences is a passion of mine. Also, as someone who grew up a high-level gymnast, I am a large advocate for athletes mental health. Reaching out for help does not make someone a weak person. This is often the narrative placed on athletes, but I believe it is quite the opposite. Asking for help is one of the bravest things someone can do. In addition to these values, I also support Health at Every Size principles. Overall, it is always my goal to help empower people to feel the freedom of owning their authenticity.
