Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
My approach to therapy is centered on the therapeutic relationship: I view therapy as a partnership between therapist and client, and I seek to establish a trusting and safe environment as a foundation. With your therapeutic goals in mind, we will work together to gain a better understanding of yourself, your experiences, your relationships, and your emotions. Through this work, I will help guide you to learn how to better approach and cope with life's many challenges, ultimately leading to a happier, more fulfilling life. Though I understand clients through a holistic and psychodynamic lens, I use a variety of approaches in my work to ensure I am meeting clients' individual needs and goals.

A family goldendoodle whom I adore. I still remember the look of excitement on his face when he first learned he could open the doors in our house with his paws - he's too smart for his own good!
