About

Welcome! My therapy practice offers services to families, adults, teens and children looking for guidance and support. I provide a blend of psycho-education, skill-building, deep listening and analyzation, client-centered reflection, and creative arts healing opportunities. I utilize evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and EFT. I also bring in elements of more traditional psychodynamic practices, and existential, spiritual & meaning-making inquiries. I believe that each client deserves a customized approach, based on their needs and desires.
I focus on the relational nature of all struggles, on our common experiences and needs as human beings, and on how normal it is to experience challenges. I also know that it is incredibly important to see and emphasize client strengths. I develop relaxed and authentic relationships with my clients, using compassion, lightness, practicality and genuine care.
I offer a free consultation call to see if it feels right to work together. It is of the utmost importance that you feel comfortable with your therapist, and that you get any initial questions answered before you begin the process. I always look forward to speaking with new clients and learning about their experiences. Do not hesitate at all to reach out.
