My Therapy Style

I am a therapist with over 15 years of experience working with children, adults, and families. I use an individualized approach with my clients as I recognize that everyone’s journey is different. I aim to create a safe environment by developing a trusting relationship in the therapeutic process. I work collaboratively with the clients to help them overcome stressors through self-growth and self-reflection. I focus on highlighting strengths and developing healthy ways of coping with life transitions. I specialize in depression, anxiety, stress management, life transitions, relationship issues, family conflict, and trauma. My treatment modalities include Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
