About

I am currently only offering tele-health services. I have trained in a variety of mental health settings treating adolescents and adults. These settings include hospitals, community clinics and private practice. I believe that therapy is an essential way to understand how the emotional and physical bodies are connected. Gaining insight of the internal self, and learning the mind-body connection, guides us to acknowledging and accepting our actions, reactions, and behaviors. Throughout my career I have worked with individuals struggling with fertility issues, trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, depression, and martial discord.
I am committed to evidence-based practice and have been trained in cognitive behavioral therapy. I also offer an integrative approach by including interventions such as acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy, and other techniques that incorporate an individual’s strengths in treatment.
I assist individuals by helping them to move forward by providing a safe environment to voice emotions, increase awareness and accept problematic thoughts and/or behaviors. I will work with clients to help them develop positive, more adaptable thoughts and behaviors.
