Announcement icon I am currently providing teletherapy and accepting new patients.
My practice is centered on collaborating with my clients. I listen closely and explore carefully in order to develop a space in which my clients and I can come to a deeper understanding of what is interfering with their wishes and goals. Whether the struggle involves depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, emotion regulation or interpersonal issues, I offer a warm and empathic environment to facilitate the expression of difficult thoughts and feelings. Throughout my graduate and post-graduate training, I have found that using a flexible approach best enables my clients to work thru fixed or destructive patterns.
One of the main ways I foster this process is by focusing on the here-and-now. I believe that balancing an attentiveness to the present with insights about the past can provide long-lasting change. I am sensitive and intuitive, and sustain a socio-economically and culturally diverse client base.
In addition to working with adults, I have extensive experience treating children and adolescents across individual, family and group modalities. I also lend an expertise in expressive techniques based upon my prior creative writing and fine art studies. I have an emerging interest in animal-assisted interventions and completed a certification in equine-assisted psychotherapy.
