My Approach to Helping

Good for you in taking this courageous step toward change!

I am passionate about using my knowledge and understanding of the human experience to help you get un-stuck and live your best life. I would love to take a deeper look with you at how you got where you are and where to go from here. Most importantly, I consider it a privilege to hear your story, come alongside you in your struggle, and walk with you through it, come what may. I am committed to providing you a safe and comfortable place to confront difficult realities and explore new possibilities. I look forward to meeting you with kindness and encouragement and without judgment, wherever you are on your journey.

My practice is rooted in the idea that humans are social creatures and we are wired for connection! We are not meant to live life alone. Life is relentless and relationships can be messy and difficult, but they can also be meaningful and healing. I integrate a variety of techniques and approaches including emotional regulation, distress tolerance, acceptance, mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, trauma-informed care- whatever best serves you- to leverage your unique strengths and gifts.

I have additional training through PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) and the Arizona Trauma Institute. I also enjoy nerding out on the latest research in relationships, neuroscience, psychotherapy, psychology, and anything else that sounds like fun!
