Therapy Style

I strongly believe that you have what it takes to find the answers and solutions that work best for you. I am here to help guide you to find those answers and explore a different perspective. I take on an eclectic approach in my practice including Psychodynamic, Solution-Focused, and Strengths-Based all while offering different skills that can help navigate relationships and day-to-day stressors.

My goal is to provide you with skills that you can take and maintain even after you complete your therapy journey with me. Some of these skills can include, but are not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy skills, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, communication, mindfulness, anxiety management, and relaxation skills. I have experience in working with all ages of life. My passion is working with young adults and adults, couples, and families. I specialize in the treatment of depression (including prenatal and postpartum), anxiety, trauma, addictions, interpersonal conflict, and life transitions.
