Therapy Style

I believe that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all phenomenon and that everyone experiences the world differently. I am a collaborative, eclectic, solution-focused therapist that uses a multi-modal approach that is client-focused and strength-based. It is important that we work collaboratively together to identify the changes you want to see in your life, identify negative thinking patterns, and utilize multiple interventions that can be tailored to everyday life.

My style is non-judgmental and interactive, and I value the importance of creating a safe and unbiased therapeutic space. I am passionate about helping clients, and my goal is to empower them to live the most authentic, happy, and healthy versions of their lives.

Pronouns

she/her

What are your interests outside of work?

My interests include traveling, interior design, and spending time with my friends and family. I am a total foodie and enjoy finding the best restaurants and local spots!

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

Pilates

What book have you read more than once?

I've read the entire Harry Potter series 3 times in different stages of my life. The magical word that JK Rowling creates is enchanting and important lessons about friendship, love, and resilience can be found throughout the pages of each novel. I am also still waiting for my Hogwarts acceptance letter.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Locks of Love and St. Jude's Children Research Hospital are two organizations that hold a special place in my life.

How do you recharge?

Journaling, completing a mindfulness exercise, doing something active, or having a no screen-time day.

Do you have any pets?

I have a Shiba Inu named Brady (yes, like Tom). She is completely aloof, scared of her own shadow, and will do almost anything for a piece of cheese.
