I believe people function and perform their best when they learn to identify, value, and utilize their natural strengths as part of a plan towards overcoming barriers in life.

My Therapy Style

I’m a therapist with an overall strength-based perspective, certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe people function and perform their best when they learn to identify, value, and utilize their natural strengths as part of a plan towards overcoming barriers in life. While I typically draw from a variety of research-based modalities, depending on each client’s unique situation, I find CBT to be a very empowering form of therapy for clients that are motivated to take a proactive role in their treatment.

As a therapist, my own biggest strengths are my education & training in evidence-based practice, paired with a creative mindset, from which I draw some unique perspectives & strategies to offer my clients. I have genuine respect for people seeking help for themselves and I truly enjoy working with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.

Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

Mostly creative endeavors, such as painting, jewelry-making, candle-making, home decorating, collecting vintage treasures, but also traveling to other countries, reading, watching documentaries

Do you have any pets?

Yes! I have an awesome German Shepherd. She is a good girl, smart, and obedient EXCEPT when I take her to Home Depot and she embarrasses me in front of people by "talking back" when I tell her to sit!
