Wellness is a way of life and it starts from within. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment so that the challenging yet rewarding work of self-exploration can be done to aid in lasting change. My hope is that each person finds not only relief from the pressing concerns that may bring them to therapy such as anxiety, depression or stress; but also develops a greater capacity to self-reflect which can lead to deeper self-awareness and the ability to tolerate higher levels of distress.
I use a variety of relational and supportive approaches to individual therapy as well as provide couples’ and family therapy. As a former school psychologist, I am knowledgeable of child development and behavior. As such, I can also provide play therapy and Trauma Focused CBT. I am also available for consultation about school related issues.
I also believe that therapy is a collaborative effort and I seek to tailor treatment to each individual’s needs and goals. As someone who is trained in both child and adult psychology, I often use a developmental approach that is underscored by an appreciation of one’s context including their intersecting identities.
