I believe in providing a safe space, in which clients can grow and always feel comfortable being their authentic selves.

My Therapy Style

I have found that the most significant aspect of success in any therapeutic experience is the client-therapist relationship and for this reason, it is very important to me that I create a safe, non-judgmental, environment for my clients. I tend to have a more casual and client-centered style and strive to provide a warm and empathetic environment, while also bringing humor and playfulness into my relationship with clients. Each of us has different life experiences and different ways in which we process and heal, which is why I tailor treatment styles to meet each client's individual needs.

I believe in providing a safe space, in which clients can grow and always feel comfortable being their authentic selves. My favorite quote describing the therapeutic process and the importance of a strong therapeutic alliance is by Irvin D. Yalom, MD, in which he says, "The act of revealing oneself fully to another and still being accepted may be the major vehicle of therapeutic help."

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional because I genuinely enjoy connecting with people and holding space for others. The human experience and all of its intricacies are something that has always fascinated me.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy going to the gym and spin class. I truly enjoy being outdoors and active. I also really enjoy taking my dog on walks and spending time at the beach.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

One thing that I do daily to support my mental and emotional well-being is movement. I have found that daily movement, whether through cycling, going for a walk, or taking a yoga class, is incredibly grounding for me.

How do you recharge?

My favorite way to recharge is by cuddling on the couch with my dog and watching a tv show. I also really enjoy a nightly meditation practice that helps me unwind and reset before bed.

Do you have any pets?

I have an 85-pound pitbull mix named Reggie and he is such a sweetheart. His favorite activity is napping under a blanket and he is an avid cuddler. He is very goofy and makes me laugh every day.
