Therapy Style

If you have found yourself here, I applaud you for taking the first step on your healing journey. Using a collaborative, nonjudgmental approach, I will help you grow into the most fulfilled and authentic version of yourself by addressing your psychological wellness on a holistic level. Together we will explore the interactions between trauma and the body, mind, and soul, and develop the tools and skills that will help you transcend your trauma and use these painful experiences as a pathway to resilience and strength. My style, while holistic and trauma-informed, primarily includes elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, with the belief that changing our thoughts subsequently changes our worlds, allowing us to live the lives we want and deserve.

Alongside more structured therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, I also incorporate mindfulness, attachment theory, and inner child healing. While I believe in treating the person rather than a condition, some of my specialty areas include the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood dysregulation, and the navigation of life transitions. You can expect therapy to feel like a safe space where you, your needs, and your growth are prioritized. I look forward to meeting with you and traveling through this healing journey together.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, seeing Broadway shows, and seeking ways to expand my awareness; for example, with a thought-provoking documentary or podcast.

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

Journaling is something I do every day to ground myself and tune in. I enjoy writing out goals, affirmations, and intentions for the day and making an effort to incorporate gratitude practices in this process as well.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network) is the organization that is closest to my heart, and one that allowed me to have my earliest professional experiences in the mental health field. RAINN provides a safe space for individuals in crisis following an experience of sexual trauma or intimate partner violence, whether directly or in bearing witness to a loved one's experience. In a world where so many are still struggling to find their voice, having a platform to empower them makes a significant impact on their healing journey.

How do you recharge?

To recharge, I enjoy getting lost in a good book (or the occasional Netflix binge) and engaging in spiritual practices, including tarot and reiki.
