Asking for help can be a hard and scary thing to do. It takes courage to admit that you’re struggling. To me, therapy is a place where you can be open, honest, and vulnerable without feeling ashamed, embarrassed, or judged. As a therapist, I believe above all else that therapy should be a safe space to be your authentic self while working towards your goals.
Some of my areas of interest and training include treating depression and other mood disorders, generalized anxiety, trauma/PTSD, substance abuse, domestic violence, and interpersonal challenges. My experience has been primarily with adults, but I also enjoy working with adolescents. I have a particular passion for working with women struggling with identity, self-esteem, relationship, and postpartum issues. I take a person-centered, psychosocial approach to my work by considering all factors that may be helping or hindering you from achieving your goals. I utilize various therapeutic techniques from CBT, DBT, and ACT. I am also trained in EMDR.
I believe that connection is the foundation upon which change occurs. My priority is making clients feel heard, understood, and validated so that meaningful work can be done. Whether you’re hoping to gain a better understanding of yourself, build skills to help you cope with life’s challenges, or learn how to create meaning in your life, I would be honored to be a part of that process.
