About

I enjoy caring for my clients, many of whom struggle to feel loved and cared for daily. I work with individuals suffering from anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, major life changes, and couples and families who experience chronic relationship conflict. Many of my clients feel like their emotional needs aren’t being met. They feel guilty for wanting more in their lives and have difficulty advocating for themselves. I also draw from my own experience as a NICU mother to work with other mothers and families who are involved in the NICU or another medical setting.
My philosophy is that no two clients are alike, therefore therapy needs to be individualized and tailored to the different needs and personalities of each person. I specialize in a therapy modality called Emotionally Focused Therapy. I help others learn how to explore their various emotional states.
Clients learn multiple cognitive behavioral techniques for decreasing the frequency of negative thought patterns like self-judgment or self-criticism. I enjoy bringing a holistic lens to practice, incorporating elements of healing across the mind, body, and spirit.
