My Approach to Helping

03-23-2020: At some point, we will go through a difficult time, whether we deal with illness, crisis, loss or relational breakdown. In those times, we need each other more than ever, to navigate the stress, anxiety and fear, ourselves, and, in turn, support those around us as they navigate it as well. And, in a situation like we're in, right now, with so much unknown and uncertain, all while managing mental health and life issues, it makes it even more challenging. Working with a therapist to deal with these challenges and change and gaining strong coping strategies can make a significant difference.

If this is your first time to try therapy or you’ve had therapy before, I know that starting at any time is hard, especially with a new person. And just the thought of retelling your story or recalling difficult times from your life can create intense feelings and emotions. I have over 10 years of extensive experience and advanced training in treating anxiety and anxiety related disorders, and bipolar. I also have advanced training and experience in treating trauma and PTSD that is evidence-based and effective, and does not require eye movement. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Social Work, and I completed my license as an LCSW in 2009. Since then, I have worked with adult clients and patients in in-patient, out-patient, intensive out-patient, and private practice settings.

Working from an integrative therapeutic approach, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), EFT (Emotion-focused Therapy) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, as well as other complimentary therapy models, and tailor treatment for each client based on needs and symptoms. I am skilled in getting to the root of presenting issues, and help clients quickly get on the road to healing and improving their lives.

More Info About My Practice

My therapy approach is client-centered and strength-based, and my style is open, accepting and relaxed. I offer safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore areas for improvement, set achievable goals, and gain the new skills and tools to manage experiences and symptoms and increase and build coping and resilience. Call or email to schedule a free 30-minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit.
