My experience with a range of therapeutic techniques including cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and psychodynamic/relational therapy, allows me to creatively tailor treatment to best meet your needs.
Life is a wonderful, and at times difficult journey. When you experience anxiety, depression, trauma or relationship/family issues on top of the pressures of daily life, coping effectively can be overwhelming. Yet know that with the right support and toolbox of skills, you have the ability to prioritize your happiness and achieve your goals. Your journey to assemble this tool box does not have to happen alone. I can provide a nurturing space where you can gain insight into unwanted patterns of behavior, identify and challenge unhelpful automatic thinking patterns and get in touch with your innate strength.

I have had extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and I like to create a space for clients to challenge themselves.
My ideal client would be someone who is trying to make connections from their past to the present, not to relive their past, but to understand why they may be struggling in the present. Learning to let go of old habits, old ways of thinking that were dysfunctional, is key to living mindfully in the present. Changing the response to the narrative is important to be able to move forward from your past experiences.

I combine my supportive, empathic approach with treatment modalities including DBT , CBT, extended CBT for eating disorders, trauma-focused CBT, the Nurtured Heart Approach, and person-centered therapy.
As a therapist, I am most effective when I work with clients who want to change their lives but struggle with knowing what changes to make and how to actually implement them. Your specific challenge may be related to anxiety, depression, perfectionism, image, self esteem, disordered eating, or relationships with others, or you may be struggling with generally feeling "stuck" and knowing that what you're doing isn't working any longer. By working together in a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, we can find and practice ways for you to overcome your difficulties so you can start to live your most fulfilled life.
