My Approach to Helping

I have always been passionate about the human story. I find it endlessly remarkable to listen to my clients' journeys and create a space together to pause, reflect, and heal. I am honored to be a part of the therapeutic community at this time when so many people are taking brave steps to engage in therapeutic relationships. I believe that as we recover, grow, and educate ourselves as individuals, we are better equipped to rehabilitate broken systems and envision our collective future. My therapy approach is collaborative based on my clients' needs and goals, but I believe in creating a warm, compassionate, and kind space, providing positive feedback, and focusing on your strengths. My background includes extensive experience working with vulnerable populations with high rates of trauma, as well as with patients with severe mental illness, as well as depression and anxiety.

I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques to explore behaviors and our emotional responses to stimuli. I apply a psychodynamic approach to care, which may include analyzing childhood experiences and relationships with family and friends. It would be my privilege to work with you and learn about your story.
