I believe the space held between therapist and client is sacred. It is a privilege and honor to be invited to take part in the journey of another person’s life - to witness their challenges and joys. I believe that you are more than your trauma or diagnosis. My goal is to be a therapeutic partner in helping you foster your strength and resilience. Together we will explore what you need to manage uncomfortable feelings, identify behaviors you want to change and integrate healthy ways of coping into the rhythm of your life. I believe in you.
I graduated from the University of Michigan with an MSW in 2007. My therapeutic approach is strengths-based and trauma-informed. I utilize a range of interventions from such evidence-based practices as CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Motivational Interviewing, and Harm Reduction.
I am currently taking new clients (ages 18+) for teletherapy. I am available weekdays late morning - early evenings.
