I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in couple therapy and treatment of anxiety and mood disorders. I deliver LGBTQ+ affirming and trauma-informed care. All folks deserve to feel fully heard and seen in therapy, and I work to create a space to bring your full self into therapy. My approach is collaborative, interpersonal, and culturally tailored. You are the expert on your own experience. Thus, I hope to partner with you to offer structure, support, and skills to process your thoughts and emotions and to progress towards your goals.
My individual therapy approach draws on evidence based therapy, mainly Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT; examining how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors interact). I also draw upon exposure therapy for anxiety disorders, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma/PTSD, DBT and ACT skills, and mindfulness.
For couple/relationship therapy, I provide tailored, affirming care to diverse constellations of couples, drawing on Cognitive-Behavioral Couple Therapy (CBCT) and Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT). These approaches equip partners move past unhelpful patterns, reconnect, more deeply understand how to tend to oneself and the relationship.
