I have a holistic and strength-based approach to healing utilizing mindfulness techniques in combination with trauma-focused healing to assist with PTSD, anxiety, and depression with brain education.
Do you ever feel like you’re alone in your emotional challenges? Managing our mental health is something we should never have to do alone. My life’s journey has led me to my passions in both the mental health and entertainment industries, allowing me to advocate for mental health resources internationally and provide therapy. I guide people to feel their power which does not lie in an ideal of perfection, but rather to find ourselves in a space where we can begin to meet ourselves where we are to heal with self-compassion. With gratitude, I am a guide to assist individuals with depression, anxiety, and PTSD, as well as couples.

I provide short-term psychodynamic therapy that combines mindfulness , relaxation and deep breathing, body sensory awareness and insight within a safe nonjudgmental space.
I work with a wide range of clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds in person and remotely. Clients learn to reduce stress and work with their feelings in ways that lead to personal growth and development of effective interpersonal skills. Feelings that cause stress, anxiety, depression, excessive self-criticism, perfectionism and emotional flooding are processed so that these problem feelings can lead to growth, greater empathy for self and others as well as greater kindness towards others in their life. Additionally, clients who employ detachment as a means of self-protection develop emotional awareness and intelligence.

I emphasize teaching skills that develop inner resources for successful coping in life. I use a variety of methods, but the method has to meet your needs.

I often teach mindfulness techniques, which can lead to increased focus, stress and anxiety reduction, mood improvement, and more productive use of therapy.
I will work with you to increase insight into your struggles, actively identify and work toward goals, and build resilience against stress. While I enjoy practicing with a wide variety of issues and types of people, I specialize in relationships (straight and gay), young adults, LGBT concerns, couples, anxiety and depression, and life transitions and losses. Building insight involves examining ways one's past impacts the present. I believe that this coupled with making concrete changes in one's life leads to a successful therapy. I am an active psychologist who will help you make these changes thoughtfully and effectively.

My approach to counseling is to create a safe space for growth and healing.

My therapeutic techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness , and Solution-Focused Therapy to create an atmosphere where the client recognizes that they are in control of their therapeutic experience.

I enjoy teaching mindfulness and self-compassion, as well as coping skills for managing anxiety, regulating emotions, increasing self-esteem, and more confidently navigating relationships.
You are seeking therapy because it is time to make a change. Maybe you know exactly what you want to change, and maybe you're still figuring that out, but something about your current experience needs to shift before you can move toward the life you want. As an integrative psychologist, I love helping people uncover what is most important to them, as well as what might be getting in the way, so that they can live with a greater sense of purpose and well-being. I would love to help you do the same.

I also use mindfulness to help clients develop new emotional skills and change habits.
Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".
