We all have strengths and weaknesses. In my practice, I like to uncover and nurture the many strengths that my clients possess. I encourage my clients to use these strengths to their advantage and to continually uncover additional strengths and resilience. Within my therapeutic approach, I use a variety of theories and modalities to assist in understanding and treating clients. I use existential and psychoanalytic theory which consider a person’s childhood experiences, attachments, and the deeper question of creating meaning in life.

These include mindfulness, using one's values to guide change, fostering compassion for oneself, and exploring existential themes.
The core of my work is creating a safe space where clients can feel heard, respected, and understood. A full and satisfying life is unique to each person; I will collaborate with you as you move toward the life you want to live. Understanding each client's culture, identities, and worldview is central to my approach. Not only is it important to deeply understand you as an individual, but also to explore how factors in the wider environment either promote your well being or intensify your distress. A holistic approach to wellness involves the individual, their relationships, and their wider world.

I use a therapeutic approach that incorporates psychodynamic, existential and person centered therapy along with cognitive behavioral techniques.
It takes courage to seek help when you are suffering. Taking steps to improve the quality of your life is one of the most valuable gifts you can give yourself. I believe it is the job of a therapist to help people on their journey and that the therapeutic relationship is an essential part of this process. The therapist must create an environment of trust where it feels safe to explore thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental, supportive manner. In this atmosphere work can begin to identify strengths and diminish self-defeating thinking and behavior so that you can move forward with your life.

My goal in therapy is to offer a space for clients to feel understood and accepted and I believe the healing comes through connection. Building a collaborative, safe, and trusting therapeutic relationship is central to my approach as I help clients find meaning and purpose in their lives and develop healthier relationships with others and themselves. I recognize that each of us gets lots of messages in this world and many of them are negative. I work to help people identify and overcome these negative messages by embracing their strengths to live a satisfying life.

Lately you have been worrying about things all the time and have been frustrated because as hard as you try not to, your anxiety is right there, all the time. Or maybe you have been replaying that event in your mind, you have tried to forget. You notice you are angrier, sadder and more worried. You just want to be able to live your life instead of having this issue get in the way daily. You just need someone to listen to you without judging you. Someone to help you deal with your issues. It would be nice to enjoy the things you used to. To connect with people more than you do now. To be a better you.

Beginning therapy can often be difficult and may carry a host of fears, uncertainties, and challenges. I believe that it can also be a life changing journey that can help explore those difficult pieces and peel those layers that have kept us from being our authentic selves. My clients are often young adults, parents, those starting a new phase in their life, or anyone navigating the process of individuation and creating change. My clients are often looking to create healthy boundaries and relationships with themselves and others. Many are healing from past trauma, toxic relationships, or entering a new phase in life.

I primarily practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based treatment rooted in the idea that many of our normal, common-sense attempts to change or eliminate unwanted thoughts and feelings actually increase our suffering, keep us stuck, and prevent us from fully living. I provide a safe and compassionate space in which to learn to respond to these difficult experiences in new ways that free you up to do what you care about most deeply. We will explore your internal and external worlds, clarify your values and goals, and learn practical skills to help you pursue them.
