Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Harm reduction, Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), Motivational interviewing (MI), Psychodynamic, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I utilize an eclectic, evidence-based approach where CBT, strengths-based, mindfulness, trauma-focused and attachment perspectives are part of my "tool box" of therapeutic interventions.
I take great care of my clients; I practice in a trauma-informed, culturally-responsive and gender-responsive manner. I have experience helping others work through adjustment periods and struggles. Often, these can overwhelm, and at times, debilitate, create stress, anxiety, depression and strain your interpersonal relationships.
As your therapist, you honor me by sharing your story. I incorporate various evidence-based approaches and recognize that everyone's situation is unique. Together we will develop a highly personalized treatment plan that maximizes your chances of success.

I enjoy hiking, traveling, spending time with friends exploring new restaurants and places and playing games.
I spend time with those who support my journey and I love to go on walks by the beach!
I do not have any pets currently. However, I had two Great Danes and they were the loves of my life! I remember one day my Great Dane got out of the backyard and was sitting on the porch when I returned home and was so afraid she had been abandoned. I was so thankful she stayed and waited!
