Meet the Team
I am passionate about therapies grounded in the here-and-now, and strongly believe that we all have the power to change our circumstances and shape our lives with focused, mindful efforts. I blend this present-moment focus with insight-oriented psychotherapy, so that the roots of problems are identified, processed, and overcome in tandem with the identification and implementation of effective strategies to change the here-and-now.
My goal is to create a safe space for each client and their unique story to be heard and accepted. What clients are experiencing in the present moment is often shaped both by their past and by the hopes they have for their future. As such, I integrate a both/and approach in my work - one in which I help clients both process the past and integrate changes in the present moment that help them realize their hopes for the future.
I specialize in several modalities like Person Centered, DBT , CBT and Narrative Therapy. I utilize these modalities, and a cluster of more current modalities, to empower clients to address, analyze and make changes to current thinking patterns and behavior. My goal is to alleviate the stress that comes with making any life change and to provide effective problem solving to focus on issues at hand.
My focus is on helping others strengthen their sense of self by creating an environment that fosters honesty and transparency, and allows the exploration of one’s thoughts, beliefs and actions in a compassionate and non-judgmental manner. My approach is eclectic and encompasses a variety of clinical modalities that include cognitive behavior therapy, positive psychology, social emotional learning, and mindfulness, all through a trauma-informed lens.
