Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), Psychodynamic, Solution-focused, Strengths-based

Therapy Style

I specialize in working with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, feeling “stuck” or disconnected, and overall personal growth (including growth in self and relationships). Since every client is unique, I use an eclectic and holistic approach to help serve your individual needs. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help increase self-awareness and acceptance to honor your strengths, feelings, and needs. I use a collaborative approach in assisting you to look inward at yourself, relationships (past and present), and diving into the past to discover patterns and insight that keep you feeling stuck.

I utilize techniques in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help identify and reframe negative thoughts, psychodynamic approaches to help gain insight into the origins of your thoughts and feelings, attachment styles, exploration of unresolved trauma, and multi-generational history of family trauma. I also include an integrated mind/body approach by practicing mindfulness and focusing on somatic symptoms in the here and now. Understanding the connection between your mind and body can help you uncover your individual needs and encourage the nurturing and healing you deserve.

Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I always wanted to understand the purpose and evolution of our emotions. This lead me to a path of wanting to demystify and destigmatize mental health issues, in addition to reducing shame associated with the symptoms related to disorders (such as anxiety or depression).

What are your interests outside of work?

My "unofficial love language" is food/cooking. Bonus if it involves a BBQ outside with friends or family.

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

Daily movement of my body. My favorite is going on simple walks!

How do you recharge?

My favorite way to recharge is turning off electronics (i.e. phone, laptop) and spending time in nature.
