I recognize that sometimes you need a little back-up to feel able to see the strength within yourself.

Approach

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Harm reduction, Motivational interviewing (MI), Strengths-based

Therapy Style

My approach combines person-centered, narrative, and cognitive-behavioral techniques. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and are fully capable of working through your struggles. I recognize that sometimes you need a little back-up to feel able to see the strength within yourself and often share the sentiment, “You got this, let me help you feel like you got this.”

What are your interests outside of work?

I am an avid baker and love trying new recipes. I am a Marvel nerd and make sure to see every new movie. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially if a board game is included!

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

I need to make sure I prioritize rest and sleep. Rest usually means time away from checking emails or attending to the to-do list!

How do you recharge?

I put my phone down and engage in something that will keep me away from my device! I love being able to take advantage of my proximity to the Finger Lakes especially in the fall. If I am not by the lake, I can usually be found relaxing by playing a board game or watching a movie.

Do you have any pets?

I have two German Shepherds, a cat and a leopard gecko. My dogs are both near 100 pounds and my cat is tiny at about 6 pounds; my tiny little cat rules the house!
