I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

Every client is unique and presents with specific struggles. Some may have relationship issues, anxiety, depression, or past/present trauma. I tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual needs of the client. However with everyone that I work with, I strive to create a nonjudgmental, warm, and accepting environment so that my clients may feel safe. I have worked with a variety of individuals whose ages ranged from the teens to their 70’s in multiple settings that included a college counseling center, inpatient and outpatient community based mental health centers, and a correctional facility.

My approach to therapy is one that prioritizes the creation of a relationship that is safe, mutual, and honest. I want my clients to feel empowered and free to explore themselves and grow into the person they wish to become. I am calm, warm, and active. I offer my clients feedback and challenge them in ways that encourage growth, often with some levity and humor. I value knowing my clients as a person and prioritize gaining an understanding and appreciation of their perspective. I work together with my clients to identify negative patterns in their life and provide the opportunity to create new, healthy experiences.

My clinical interests include anxiety, trauma and PTSD, relationship concerns, LGBTQ issues, worry and perfectionism, and family discord. I am an integrative therapist that most often utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while incorporating other evidence-based treatment approaches.

"Does this support the life I am trying to create?" is a question I ask myself daily. It is important to me that our therapeutic relationship fosters a safe, accepting, and collaborative space by exploring resilience, strengths, and informed curiosity. I strive to facilitate self-empowerment and self-efficacy through adaptive coping/behavioral skills, strengthening cognitive insight, while honoring that change is hard when life gets rough. My work with individuals who have felt unheard and invalidated has led me to conceptualize concerns related to eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance use as closely intertwined.

Many people choose to enter therapy to gain a deeper understanding of themselves – their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in addition to problems in their interpersonal relationships.  Oftentimes, the issues we face in the present stem from painful experiences in the past.  As a result of these experiences, we develop ways of coping in the world – some continue to serve us well and others may get in the way of us living a more fulfilling life. I offer a warm, non-judgmental, and safe environment for exploration, healing, and growth.
