I believe that some of the biggest shifts begin within the therapeutic relationship and then extend out into daily life and that all clients have the ability to make changes in their lives. I strive to create a safe space for them to be able to do that, to explore the roadblocks that get in the way of living a healthy, balanced life, and to identify strengths that they can build upon.
My aim is to help clients see what is in their control to change and where it may help to practice acceptance. I want to empower my clients to be their best selves and address unique challenges from developmental, cultural, and psychological viewpoints.
I integrate different approaches to therapy including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, interpersonal approaches, attachment, and family systems theories.
I specialize in working with people experiencing Anxiety, depression, Eating Disorders, life transitions, career issues, grief/bereavement, gains and losses, self-esteem and body image issues, and Trauma.
Collaborative, Client-centered, empowering.
