Therapy Style

"You are not broken, you are breaking through."

After a major stressor, loss or transition, it is normal to experience big emotions (new or past) and feel like your ground is unsteady. My mission is to help you uncover your power through an attachment focus so that you can begin to heal and grow from the inside out. By starting where you are, together we will make meaning and create new experiences after a significant change in order to develop a future template for the next phase of your life. I aim to achieve this through a collaborative, strength-based, skill-building and trauma-informed perspective.

I am a nonjudgmental and warm therapist with 12 years of experience. I offer short and long-term individualized therapy, with a strong grounding in theory and clinical experience. I employ a cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral and relational approach. I am EMDR certified and trauma trained and specialize in working with women around perinatal and postpartum mood and anxiety issues. I believe that goodness of fit and a trusting relationship is the key foundational element to the therapeutic process. I will look to you frequently to check-in and ensure that together, we are steering the course. In our work, we will make sense of your story in a space safe enough for new discoveries.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I've always been called to the helpers. My parents are both medical professionals and its always been a priority of mine to proactively treat mental health as part of one's whole body experience.

What are your interests outside of work?

Spending time with my daughter, experiencing culinary delights with my husband taking walks with myself(or dog!) and feeling the sun as much as I can in any given day.

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

Daily mindfulness walk with self affirmations and gratitude.

What book have you read more than once?

The Body Keeps the Score because different parts speak to me each time and it distills the the realness and rawness of the shared human experience of trauma.

How do you recharge?

In the sun.

Do you have any pets?

I have a dog Hugo, a lovingly stubborn French bulldog.
