"I utilize a growth-oriented approach to empower people to problem solve and make changes to pursue the life they envision. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies are used in my practice, with an emphasis on the use of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, to equip people with the skills needed to overcome life’s stressors and challenges. In dialectics, we acknowledge the opposing sides of each experience and work together to synthesize the two. I prioritize developing a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship that will meet you where you are at in your journey, and will come alongside you to cultivate your strengths."

"There is something keeping you from having the happy, fulfilling life you crave. Anxiety about your career is causing performance issues at work. Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up. You're in a demanding career or caregiver role that has you burned out. You can't get away from low self-esteem and self-doubt. "
