About

**My practice is currently full** I see the therapeutic process as a collaborative one. My approach is to provide a safe, warm and respectful space for my clients to navigate through any challenges they are experiencing, or areas they would like to improve upon in their own personal journey. Many times these obstacles may hinder an individual from moving forward. My role is to assist them in this process to move towards living a more fulfilling and whole life.
I work with adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, disordered eating, interpersonal relationships, divorce, parenting and life transitions. I also work with women struggling with perinatal mood disorders, infertility, pregnancy loss, and birth trauma.
My approach is rooted in the Systems approach, which looks at core relationships and how they impact our view of ourselves in relation others. I also draw from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness based therapy, and Interpersonal therapy. I believe being mindful of and bringing awareness to the message we send ourselves can be very powerful.
