My experience ranges from working in community mental health to university and academic settings. I believe in an individualized approach based on emotional recognition, mindfulness, and strengths/values. I've also worked within the realms of performance and exercise psychology, both of which can play a supplemental role in treatment. I often draw from a variety of expressive therapies to channel the best form of communication, the first priority being to generate a comfortable, trusting environment.

Do any of these resonate for you? You want to break free from anxiety or depression, or tame your harsh inner-critic. You’ve tried counseling, or read self-help books, or have a mindfulness practice. But your distress persists, the harsh inner critic refuses to be tamed. Maybe you feel stuck professionally. You’d love to feel more fulfilled by your work, but just don’t see how to make this happen. Or maybe you’re looking for a loving relationship, but despite all your efforts, true intimacy remains elusive.

I strongly believe that we all possess a unique, authentic self, shining beneath the shoulds, woulds, and coulds of social expectations. Unearthing this true self and calibrating it with intentionality can bring forth a sense of liberation, confidence, and buoyancy. These powerful feelings overflow into every relationship in our lives. Simply put, an event or a repetitive behavior can cause us hurt and pain. This is the impetus for change, which we use to unpack larger issues from across our lives. We treat the cause, and not just the effect, in order to create lasting change and improve your quality of life.
