I work with young adults to older adults (18+) and I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, trauma, identity development, life transitions, and navigating relationships. I love working with clients who recognize the need for change in their lives and are motivated to work towards bettering their relationship with themselves and others.
I utilize both psychodynamic (how the past influences the present) and interpersonal approaches (how relational patterns impact psychological well-being) to therapy. In addition, I also borrow from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)/Mindfulness to help build healthy coping strategies.
I approach each therapeutic relationship differently, given the presenting concerns as well as our unique relational dynamic. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most important pieces of therapy, therefore, I welcome ongoing feedback and I like to consistently check in on our relationship.
My passion is to help people live fully authentic lives with themselves and with others. I do not believe in a one size fits all therapy, but I do believe in two necessary factors: hope and a strong therapeutic relationship. Hope ignites the courage to take the first step towards change and the therapeutic relationship is the vessel in which the journey towards change takes place.
