My Approach to Helping

In today’s society, and in many cultures, mental health has become a topic of many conversations yet it is still something we all struggle to seek help with. I am a licensed clinical psychologist who strives to create a safe and nurturing environment for individuals no matter where they are in life and what hurdles they are struggling with. As a clinician, I have worked with individuals of varying ages, cultural backgrounds, mental health diagnosis, and life experiences. I have a history of working in a variety of settings and have come to understand mental health at all levels (i.e., telehealth, outpatient, extensive outpatient, and inpatienthospital settings). I believe that we as individuals are all unique, though we may have similar experiences, our interpretations of these experiences are what makes us unique. Therefore, I tailor my treatments to each individual that I work with. I am well versed in Schema Therapy, CBT, DBT, ACT, and various other modalities.
