Therapy Style

My approach to therapy is collaborative, client-centered, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I meet clients where they are at and help guide them to where they want to be.

I draw upon evidence-based practices including mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and tailor these approaches to each client. I help individuals recognize and harness their own personal strengths while learning new ways to challenge negative thought patterns and unhealthy behaviors that can keep us feeling stuck, depressed, and anxious.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love nature and spending time outdoors. I enjoy running, hiking, biking, tennis, and spending time with my family. I also love traveling and experiencing new places and cultures.

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

I try listen to my body everyday and use that as a guide to my wellbeing. I find that helps me to eat well, rest when needed, exercise, have fun, and live a balanced life.

What book have you read more than once?

Siddhartha. I read this more than once as a kid and it resonated with me. The messages on suffering and happiness have informed my work as a therapist.

How do you recharge?

Take mini-vacations, lay in the sun, get immersed in a good book or TV show, connect with friends
