My Approach to Helping
I believe that all of us are built to heal, and that therapy can be the key to unlocking the healer within. I have been told that my calming presence and gentle approach help people who are new to therapy to feel safe and comfortable. I am active in the room during therapy and I provide direct feedback when it is needed. I have training in multiple modalities of therapy and believe in customizing my approach to meet individual needs and support each individual's unique strengths. I particularly enjoy working with young adults who are transitioning to independence and people who identify as LGBTQIA.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have experience treating a broad range of mental health concerns including different forms of anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. I also have a strong understanding of the unique needs of transition-age young adults.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love being a part of the healing process and watching people change and grow over time. I also enjoy meeting new people and building new connections.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Everyone needs to ask for help sometimes, and asking for help from a therapist takes courage and strength. Going to therapy means that you are committed to growth and brave enough to confront the problems that you face.
