I offer a person-centered and integrative approach to therapy, drawing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, family systems and feminist theory, as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I teach strategies and tools to manage the symptoms that may be affecting your daily functioning, while also engaging in a compassionate, honest, and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship to facilitate deeper healing. For me, therapy is a holistic process of addressing biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of individuals and their backgrounds.

I have experience with a wide variety of issues, including mood disorders, traumatic life events, grief and loss. I am particularly passionate about working with Third Culture Kids/Missionary Kids and others dealing with cultural adjustments, individuals who identify as Christian and/or LGBTQ+, college students, and people who identify as biracial or multicultural.

In addition to talk therapy, I am trained in using art and sand tray, which facilitate expression when words are inadequate. Similarly, I use play therapy with children as play is still their primary language. Whatever the modality, therapy with me is a collaborative journey that can empower clients to live more authentic, fulfilling lives.
