Therapy Style

I am a firm believer in the power of genuine and meaningful connection with others and the importance of feeling heard, understood, and seen. My approach is to use evidence-based practices to create positive change in my client’s lives and relationships.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and my dogs. I have a 5 year old son who loves to keep me busy with playing with Lego and Jujitsu practices. I try and stay active most days and do so by running and lifting weights. Some of my other interests include traveling and being in nature.

What book have you read more than once?

The Body Keeps the Score by Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk. It provides so much insight on how our bodies store trauma memories. I like to read as many self-help/ psychology books as a I can to identify which books and resources might be most supportive to my clients.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I did my internship at the Ronald McDonald House of Charities and have seen first-hand the important work they do to support families to stay together during one of the most challenging times in their lives.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs. One is a German Shepherd Husky mix and the other is a German Shepherd mix. Both are rescue dogs that came into my life when they were 8 weeks old and now they are 12 yrs old.
