I draw on aspects of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, humanistic, psychodynamic, and acceptance and commitment therapy to assist clients in improving their symptoms, relationships, self-image, and coping strategies.
I strongly believe that therapy should be a safe place where anyone can come and talk about their life without judgment or shame. It is a place where everyone can benefit from unconditional empathy, understanding, and grace. I am an outgoing person who is easy to talk to, and I do my best to make the therapeutic process as smooth and understandable as possible. We will go at your pace and create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. I strive to help you become self sustaining where you can gain a sense of understanding of what skills you need, why you are utilizing them, and when to utilize the skills learned.

I utilize Gestalt principles and Parts Psychology with a trauma focused perspective to identify attachment styles and defense mechanisms showing up individually or within couples.
Arriving at the moment when you have finally decided you deserve to feel better is vulnerable. I want to meet you there, in that vulnerability. I have experience working with individuals or couples who are struggling with shame and trauma responses showing up in their romantic relationships or sexual experiences. I help clients catch their own patterns that leave them feeling stuck and help them identify the origins of these wounds to move them to a place of options. By then helping match these options to core values, clients are able to make decisions that feel empowering and authentic.
