About

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.
My areas of expertise include the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life-stressors, ADHD, and chronic pain. With therapeutic interventions for pain, I developed a program that takes advantage of the way our brains process pain in order to retrain the brain to manage painful episodes to improve well-being and promote resiliency.
Therapy entails a safe, non-judgmental environment, which I work hard to foster during the therapeutic relationship, and I welcome the privilege of walking alongside others to facilitate individual goals.
