About

As a therapist, my broader goal is in helping you experience higher states of fulfillment, joy, and peace of mind - rather than simply helping you decrease the symptoms you're having. It's about happiness and each person's unique recipe for that. I work well with a wide variety of psychoemotional problems such as anxiety, depression, substance misuse, and relationship difficulties with family, friendships, the self, or your love life. I have years of experience working in addiction treatment which has allowed me to work with an incredibly diverse population of all backgrounds.
The backbone of my therapy approach is collaborative and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also bring in elements from mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy.
I am a therapist at Octave, a modern behavioral health practice that supports your emotional well-being through a broad range of services. At Octave, we partner with you to develop a personalized care plan that best suits your needs. Learn more at www.findoctave.com
