Therapy Style

My commitment to you involves helping you reduce and/or manage the anxiety, depression, burnout, and relational distress. We will shed the layers of self-doubt, fend off the overwhelming and burdensome negativity that drags you down, and restore positive life balance to you and the people that matter most to you. By taking a closer look at the patterns within your relationships, and your personality style, and then looking deeper into the place where these thoughts and feelings were all formed, you can learn to break old patterns and establish a strong independent sense of self.

I have more than 10 years of therapy experience in public, non-profit, and educational settings working with a variety of ages, populations, and mental health concerns. I have been in private practice for 8 years.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

My interest in therapy primarily started as a desire to understand myself and others better, specifically my family dynamics. I am fascinated by how different and the same people can be, and I am curious about the causes and motivations for these differences and similarities. In my own experience with therapy and personal growth, I have continued to develop a passion for helping others understand themselves better and rewrite their own stories.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love nature, early morning walks, exploring new places, various artistic/creative activities, and reading.

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

I have found that early morning walks, mindfulness or meditation, and reading/journaling are daily activities that keep me attuned to myself.
