Compassion, respect, and collaboration are at the core of my work. Together, we will build trust and create an open and safe space to navigate concerns that contribute to dissatisfaction in one’s life, career, and relationships. I work with individuals by integrating evidence-based practices, tools, and expertise from lived experience. My goal is to guide the people I work with to illuminate their strengths, access inner resources and sources of motivation, and develop a personalized plan to connect with and bring forth their ideal self.
My approach draws upon Humanistic, Psychodynamic, and Cognitive-Behavioral theories. I integrate expressive arts, mindfulness-based practices, and somatic techniques into my work with individuals to provide a holistic therapeutic experience. I have received training in Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) interventions.
My areas of focus are Mood Disorders, Interpersonal Relationships, Guilt/Shame, Chronic Stress, Self-Esteem, LGBTQIA+ Concerns, and Women's Issues. I am passionate about working with FGLI College Students, Young Professionals, the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals impacted by intergenerational trauma.
