I use an integrative approach, blending various evidence-based treatments and techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, ERP, and acceptance - and compassion-based therapies.
I endeavor to help clients better to understand the nature and nuances of their particular difficulties so that they can live a rich, meaningful life. I have experience helping people with a wide array of psychological difficulties, including OCD, anxiety, depression, anger, relational difficulties, and major life transitions. Before beginning my clinical psychology training I worked in business at multiple private-sector organizations - I leverage this distinctive combination of experience and expertise when working with all clients, and especially those who find their work lives impacted by their struggles.

Mindfulness techniques allow us to sit with our grief and pain, acknowledge emotions and increase acceptance .
You're feeling overwhelmed navigating women's health issues or postpartum depression and anxiety. You are an intelligent, high achieving woman who is dealing with the grief of a diagnosis, like endometriosis, infertility or an autoimmune disorder. The toll of complex chronic health issues and medical trauma is heavy, anxious thoughts fill your mind and you are feeling more down than usual. You want to figure out a way to not just survive with women's health issues but to thrive and live your life fully each day. You need support, a place to process your grief and coping skills to walk through this difficult situation.

With this reframe, our focus becomes on altering routines, implementing an appropriate sensory diet, adjusting school accommodations, fostering certain relationships, developing self-advocacy and communication skills, enhancing flexibility and adaptability, and improving distress tolerance and emotional acceptance .
My greatest passion in life is helping children, adolescents, and young adults navigate their own therapeutic journey. As a neurodiversity affirming therapist, I focus less on problematic behaviors and more on identifying unmet needs and lagging skills. I am strong believer that children are not intentionally giving their parents/teachers/caregivers a hard time, but rather they are having a hard time. As Dr. Ross Green states, "kids do well if they can."

In my practice, I utilize CBT and ACT to help you change the way you think and approach life’s problems.
You may find that you are feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or not knowing how to navigate life's problems. Society and life expectations can be really good at telling us what we should choose, value, or what should be important. You may feel trapped in cycles of judgment, perfectionism, and over analysis, which could lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and stagnation. I am here to help you find your way out of the mind’s clever traps and to teach you to relate differently to these types of thinking patterns, so these thinking patterns can no longer hold power over you.

In my work as a therapist, I lean on evidenced-based therapies, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Brief-Solution Focused Therapy, and mindfulness-based therapy.
Life is tough. Life throws you a curveball, an unexpected job loss, a medical diagnosis, a loved one dying, a child too difficult to handle, another failed relationship, and the list is endless. Yet the world around you keeps going, it seems there is no option to pause. We live in a busy world, with all its difficult circumstances. A sense of hopelessness, helplessness ensues. Yet, a part of you knows it can be different. You wouldn't be reading this if you weren't looking for a way to make it better. Somehow. If you need just a gentle push, an ounce of encouragement, or a ton of compassion, I am here for you. We will work together

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a modern style of therapy that harmonizes the accepted science of behavior with the way that we understand and experience ourselves and our roles in society.
I provide services to clients in Oregon and Maryland, as I am currently licensed in both states. Do you feel trapped by circumstances beyond your control? Are you unable to escape negative thoughts? Have you forgotten why you made the decisions that led you to this moment? Talk therapy can offer a way forward. Therapy can be a safe space to catch your breath, to talk out ideas that feel strange or risky, and to devise a new strategy for reconnecting with your best self.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. IN-PERSON AVAILABLE. In-home sessions available for children and families 0-8 years old. Just as each individual is unique, I see treatment as unique as well, meaning no single therapy approach can claim to be the solution to every individual that walks through my door.
