My Approach to Helping
I am passionate about helping people meet their unique, personal goals and believe that there is not a one-size-fits-all recipe for therapy. My work enables me to interact with diverse clients who all have different experiences, needs, hopes, dreams, and life journeys and I feel privileged to be a part of their story. I strive to provide a compassionate, supportive atmosphere for counseling and use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help identify what is and isn't working and create new possibilities for those seeking change.
I have extensive experience working with women and families during pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, and parenting stages of life, and am also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I work with individuals and families in a variety of areas including depression, anxiety, role strain, relationship changes, adjustment issues, and chronic illness. I know how hard it is to pick up the phone, call a stranger, and ask for help. Taking that first step is a leap of faith, but it's one I hope you will make.
