I believe therapy means making you feel deeply known and accepted. My approach centers on harnessing your unique strengths in building the bridge between where you are and where you want to be. I appreciate how some old habits you have picked up at an earlier point may no longer serve you now. The process of understanding yourself with compassion and learning new ways of being in the world isn't always easy, but I'll be with you every step of the way.
I help adults who struggle with their mood and want to create deeper connections with their loved ones. As your therapist, I believe in creating a warm and secure bond to open the space for long-lasting, personal growth. Together we can find and solve the "stuck points" holding you back from living a full and meaningful life.
I take an integrative approach reflecting my honed expertise with two powerful modalities, Schema and EMDR. And when necessarily, I "add on" the practical skills of CBT & DBT

I make it a priority to be adaptive with my approach as no style fits all. I have found Schema to be the most effective in my work with clients, and I "add on" the practical skills of ERP, EMDR, CBT, & DBT when necessary.
