Therapy is a way to approach suffering through communication and a relationship. It is a sacred co-collaborated space that can facilitate a process of reflection and healing. As a graduate of Smith School of Social Work, I had the opportunity to thoroughly explore psychodynamic psychotherapy. Through certificate programs I enhanced my knowledge in palliative care, trauma assessment and treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, clinical hypnosis and sensorimotor psychotherapy.

My clients describe me as a genuine & actively engaged therapist. I am an experienced licensed psychologist who has worked in College Counseling, Hospitals, & Private Practice. I work with professionals & college students. Therapy research indicates that no single form of counseling is effective with all clients or problems, therefore I match my approach to the needs of my clients. I integrate several theoretical orientations, including Psychodynamic (insight oriented), Cognitive -Behavioral (skills development), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and emotion focused approaches, which create the basis of my compassionate style.

In conjunction with traditional psychotherapeutic frameworks ( CBT , DBT, Gestalt, Psychodynamic), I use Expressive Arts Therapy (Movement, Drama, Music/Sound, Art) to help foster a creative process.
The therapy session is a time and space one sets aside to focus on self. To be with self. And to build one’s self. It can be challenging to reflect on patterns, thoughts and emotions, relationships, past events and/or change, but it can also be transformative and rewarding. My role as your therapist is to witness your process and to reflect back with you along the way. The therapeutic relationship is an essential piece of my practice and is built on honesty, trust, empathy, and compassion.

Research tells us that, of all factors, the therapeutic relationship has the most significant influence on treatment outcome. My primary focus of treatment is to establish and maintain a genuine and collaborative relationship; one which allows room for growth and healing. I approach treatment wholeheartedly and care deeply about those with whom I work. You will likely find me to be warm, insightful, and transparent. Drawing from Humanistic Psychology, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Social Justice, my holistic approach to therapy is individualized to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient.

As a former collegiate athlete, I faced various challenges during my athletic career. As I navigated my recovery from injuries, I became aware of the various mental and physical obstacles that accompany recovering from an injury. My experiences as an athlete motivated me to help individuals tackle their own mental struggles. In our work together, I strive to build a safe space for you to share your own experiences and make changes at your own pace. I will create an individualized plan with you to target your unique goals. I utilize a strength-based approach while also integrating CBT , DBT and Mindfulness interventions.

While I pull from many approaches in my work, I especially enjoy utilizing skills-based therapies like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia ( CBT -I).
Through my own lived experience, I can deeply resonate with the realities my Millennial and Gen Z clients face. Dating, social media, politics, finances, and demands from school or work can be so daunting. My main priority as a therapist is to create a non-judgmental, engaging, and approachable environment where you feel empowered to navigate these challenges together. Just having one of those days where you need to vent about your mom, partner, or roommate? There’s plenty of space for that too.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
