I view many of the challenges we face as human beings rooted in the very common human struggle of ambivalence. We would prefer to avoid unpleasant experiences, negative thoughts and feelings, and perhaps have not yet made our own case for change. I approach the many psychological issues listed under specialties from the perspective of helping people to enhance their motivation to change, as well as bringing mindfulness to one's every day experiences, whether they be pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral. Whether you may struggle with depression, anxiety, ambivalence, substance use, or other issues, the approaches I offer can help.

Sometimes reading self-help books or talking to friends isn't enough. I want to help you create a roadmap towards your goals while exploring what's not working in your life, and celebrate your strengths along the way! Using a relational and strengths-based approach, I incorporate art therapy and culturally humble interventions to improve emotional regulation, social skills, coping mechanisms, and self-efficacy. I am passionate about the transformational power of art as an agent of growth and change. I work with children, teens, and adults in discovering tools that will create space for a more fulfilling, joy-filled life.

Anyone who has ever experienced trauma cannot overlook the excruciating pain and fear it instills in the body and mind. Such pain, if left unattended may morph into depression, anxiety, chronic physical pain, and profound sense of loss and continuous grief. It can mask our identity and destroy our lifestyle. We turn out to be disoriented, stuck, and confined. Our lives become foreign to us. We find ourselves witnessing its broadcast, as opposed to fully experiencing it in the moment. Hence, we turn to our defenses in the form of compensatory behaviors, such as addiction and compulsions or lose the meaning of life.

I take an embodied approach to healing–whether that is by working somatically with the felt sense in the body or through the use of expressive arts. I am here to provide a trauma-sensitive container that allows you to investigate and integrate the inner workings of your mind, heart, body, and spirit. My approach is warm, collaborative, and dynamic. I believe in your innate wisdom to discover your own path to healing, and feel honored to join in that discovery. I am here to witness, affirm, and celebrate your unique story, while acknowledging the ways different systems have impacted your lived experiences.

You’ve made it out of the pandemic and are ready to get your life back! Perhaps you were at home with family or isolated in an apartment? The pause gave you space to think and to evaluate what you actually want your life to look like: more time with loved ones, more time for self-care, less time on your phones?

When we decide to turn toward our own experiences with care, support and mindfulness we learn to respond instead of react. In some ways change is not easy, it's not a straight line and it's unpredictable. Yet, if we don’t actively build a momentum toward responding, we will grow our suffering through reactivity. The mind is changeable and we can become the guardians of our minds. Emotions are like the weather and we can learn to weather the emotional storms. Our bodies store memories & trauma along with tremendous wisdom. When we value being present, cherish feeling alive and meet life with an open heart we grow these capacities.

What type of Belmont mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Belmont?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
