My Approach to Helping
Whether you are seeking therapy for the first time, you're transitioning out of a higher level of care, or you're somewhere in between, my goal is to help you experience relief from your symptoms and get back to living life on your terms. I work with teenagers (13+) and adults and specialize in treating eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. I also have experience in treating PTSD and OCD and understand the importance of providing trauma-informed care. Regardless of your diagnosis, I believe that it's important to tailor each person's treatment to their specific needs.
As part of my treatment approach, I believe that each session is an opportunity for you to develop a deeper awareness of the self, uncover patterns, learn to build tolerance for uncomfortable emotions, and strengthen self-compassion. I also provide art therapy, which allows you to express emotions and process experiences that may be difficult to speak about.
I have seen first-hand how both talk therapy and art therapy can encourage growth and support an increase in self-awareness and mindfulness. I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child gain support and learn skills that will be beneficial for years to come!
