Therapeutic Approach:

My approach to therapy believes that we are at our best when we are able to connect to other people in authentic, mutually caring relationships. We often come to therapy because our mental health struggles are getting in the way of your relationships, or relational difficulties from our past are continuing to interfere with our lives. I strive to create a warm, compassionate, and safe relationship with my clients as the foundation of healing. I work together with you to explore your past and present to gain greater insight into your struggles, identify and cultivate your unique strengths, and grow into a more fulfilling life as an individual and in your relationships.

I integrate multiple styles of therapy in order to meet my clients where they are at, including psychodynamic therapy, CBT/DBT, and relational/feminist therapy.

Advanced Trainings:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
