My Approach to Helping
Have you ever felt like you’re figuring this out alone? You don’t have to! I believe in a whole person interconnectedness, taking a holistic approach including all facets of mind, body and spirit. My focus is to make each patient feel supported, build trust and to create a safe space to experience the ups and downs of life together.
I foster a patient-centered approach and tailor each session to meet the needs of everyone. I am passionate about serving others and involve a variety of treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology and Mindfulness, taking a humanistic and trauma informed approach.
I find immense value in adjunctive approaches such yoga, meditation, pet therapy and faith-based perspectives. I specialize in mood and anxiety disorders, life transitions, parenting challenges, fertility challenges, stress management and body image issues. My hope is that we navigate through life’s transitions together, walking side by side.
Prior to joining OCHP, I have worked with large, diverse populations while leading various program types such as acute inpatient, residential, walk-in crisis center and community mental health programs.
