I see counseling as a collaborative relationship that moves individuals along the path to empowerment and self-awareness. I am deeply committed to helping clients focus on their goals and build on existing strengths to cope with life’s challenges in a safe, open, and non-judgmental environment. I consider myself to be an eclectic and integrative therapist and tailor my style to the needs of each client, focusing on meeting each individual on where they are in their journey.
My practice focuses on a holistic approach to treatment emphasizing the importance of the mind-body relationship and the overall effects that thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and our environment have on our life experiences. My work supports individuals in developing a deeper understanding and connection with themselves, stronger more fulfilling relationships with others, and overall life balance and satisfaction strengthened by positive mental and emotional health.
HOW I WORK
I work primarily with young adults and adults through individual insight-oriented and supportive psychotherapy. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, communication issues, eating disorders, grief, and have experience with psychosis. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, psychodynamic, motivational interviewing, and person-centered approaches. I am a National Certified Counselor and a member of the American Counseling Association.
I am also fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and specialize in working with deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their families.
