I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults (average age 13 to 25) who struggle with anxiety symptoms related to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have extensive experience in treating survivors of sexual abuse. I utilize exposure-based interventions, which are designed to help confront fears, expand comfort zones, and extinguish avoidance behaviors. I help to achieve trauma resolution by processing traumatic incidents, reducing the associated anxiety and anger, and assisting in therapeutic corrective experiences.
I also work extensively with people in the LGBTQ+ community as both a therapist and ally, helping them to build self-assurance, resolve gender dysphoria, and improve relationships. I believe it is important to feel supported, accepted, and comfortable with your identity and body.
My approach to therapy is supportive, creative, and emotionally stimulating. I believe it is important to provide a safe environment where people can challenge themselves and face their discomfort. I have a wide range of experience working with youth and emerging adults in a variety of settings, such as schools, clinics, and partial hospital day programs.
