My Approach to Helping

We live in a world where we're becoming more and more isolated. It leaves us craving connection and understanding. I work in a relational way that allows clients to empower themselves and deepen their awareness. Everyone wants to be seen and accepted, especially teens. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

More Info About My Practice

In my private practice, I work with children, teens, and young adults ages 5 to 21 years old. My theoretical orientation is humanistic and strength-based while also drawing on principles from Gestalt, CBT, psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness. I have extensive cross-cultural experience working with a diverse population and strive to honor a client's culture, religion, and traditions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am passionate about working with children and teens who come to therapy with a variety of issues. Whether they are struggling with depression, anxiety, substances, identity issues, grief and loss, or relationship issues, I will collaborate with the client to help them achieve their therapeutic goals and empower themselves.
