how i can help you

My approach to therapy is integrative, with an emphasis on person-centered and strengths-based treatment. This means that I will tailor my specific approach to best meet your unique therapeutic goals, by incorporating techniques pulled from trauma-informed practices, internal family systems (IFS), mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and other therapeutic approaches.

As your therapist, my primary goal is to create a warm, non-judgmental space within which we can cultivate a genuine, trusting, and supportive connection. From this foundation of safety, we will work together – at the pace that feels right for you – to explore your internal and external relationships with openness and curiosity.

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to witness others as they honestly and courageously navigate their unique journeys through therapy.

I enjoy helping those I work with to develop a deeper understanding and acceptance of self, to identify fresh perspectives, to find meaning and hope, and to facilitate positive change. I am also passionate about incorporating creativity in therapy; I strongly believe in the creative process as a powerful tool for self-discovery and healing.
