The nexus of emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical health is integral to healing. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Mindful Self-Compassion informed Psychotherapist, I believe in the potential that relationships offer for growth and healing. Using authentic warmth, empathy, and humor, I create a safe environment where clients feel supported to explore and heal. I honor each individual’s story, experience, and ways of coping and believe that each and every one of us has the fundamental capacity to grow and evolve.

I work with individuals and couples to help them actualize their innate qualities of goodness and wholeness. I support people who are overwhelmed with stress, anxiety, or depression, in order to help them learn to transform their life challenges into opportunities for healing and growth. Individuals and couples will learn to recognize behaviors that keep them stuck and are provided with tools to help them process difficult emotions and connect and communicate more effectively and lovingly. Through establishing a caring therapeutic relationship clients can become more confident and secure within themselves.

I am passionate about the connection with one's core self. I have found that trauma and transitions can result in a disconnect with the core self and that peace and healing can be achieved by repairing this connection. Pre-adolescence, adolescence, and early adulthood are times marked by a myriad of major transitions. This process of transitioning between life stages continues across the lifespan. Additionally, a disconnect with the core self may be rooted in trauma or transition that happened many years ago. To this end, I provide services to preteens, teens, and adults.

I work with adults using a psychodynamic approach and view the counseling process as a partnership and an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself. We will honor the patterns that have kept you safe in the past, while at the same time gently removing the barriers that have kept you from being the person you wish to be. I utilize different therapies in my work, including Internal Family Systems, and EMDR.

( ( Accepting New Clients ) ) Safe and trusting relationships are the context in which we most often experience healing — especially when we have been wounded by others. I believe that earning and maintaining your trust is foundational for the counseling process. I seek to provide a compassionate, genuine, calm, & steady presence, so that you can feel safe and supported as you engage in the important and at times difficult work of therapy. I am most excited when my clients can see their own strengths and realize that they are capable of facing and releasing past wounds in order to grow and heal in ways that used to seem impossible.

Whether you are struggling with issues like anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or self doubt, I have learned to trust that the therapeutic relationship can catalyze an upward spiral of healing and growth we all are wired for. Maybe you are curious about insecure patterns you have in relationships at home, work, and/or with friends, or you feel generally anxious, tense, stuck or shut down about life right now and you want to approach life from a place of security. I affirm your decision to reach out for support and guidance and believe that through our work together, you can not only feel better but thrive.

Feeling overwhelmed, worried, or panicked all the time is exhausting. My goal is to provide a warm environment where clients feel heard, valued, and comfortable collaborating to identify and process any challenges. I encourage people to consider, and even appreciate, that most of our difficult behaviors helped us to survive at some point, which can be a profound shift in perspective. To create meaningful change, I help clients to notice patterns that are no longer useful and to create and maintain healthier ones. Sessions with me often include a combination of deep listening, highlighting your strengths, skill-building, and humor.

What type of University mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in University?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
