About

Have you ever had a therapist sit silently the entire session while you recounted what you did that week? I can assure you - you won't get this with me. Trained as a behavioral scientist, I utilize active, evidence-based approaches for improving well-being. Using thoughtful questioning, constructive reflection, and carefully-designed behavioral experiments, I provide you with the opportunity to practice both problem-focused and emotion-focused strategies for coping with life's stressors. I work collaboratively with you to help you establish new habits to achieve your goals and increase your quality of life.
I balance my use of evidence-based methods with empathy and compassion. With nearly 2 decades of research experience in psychology and neuroscience, my approach is strongly rooted in science. That being said, my approach is neither impersonal nor rigid. We will co-create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific goals and values.
I am passionate about empowering individuals to enhance their well-being by teaching skills that enhance self-awareness, emotion regulation, and resilience. This starts with a free 25-min consultation. Please visit my website for more FAQ and to self-book an appointment: www.innerstrengthpsychotherapy.com
