I work with clients individually with a wide range of mental health concerns. I offer both empirically supported as well as more in-depth growth oriented psychotherapy. In therapy, I frequently incorporate principles of mindfulness and self-compassion with evidence‑based strategies in order to promote insight and facilitate personal growth.
Finding a therapist that feels like “the right fit” is essential for therapy to be helpful. It is important to find someone you trust and who is knowledgeable about the things that have prompted you to seek help. I am glad to have the opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself and how I practice.
I believe that part of being human means that most of us will inevitably struggle at some point in our lives. It is common to seek support and guidance to help navigate through these difficult times. My treatment philosophy is grounded in compassionately understanding client’s unique life history and experiences. I highly value authenticity and flexibility; therefore my goal is to build a collaborative relationship so that we can tailor therapy to address your individual needs. I am deeply committed to helping my clients develop lives that feel meaningful based on their own individual values. While feeling better is often a goal when beginning therapy, I believe that shifting focus to living better is where profound change can occur. My clients describe me as warm, non-judgmental and attentive to their needs.
