A Bit About Me

As a therapist, my goal is to create a space for clients to build off their strengths, get unstuck from unhelpful patterns, and access new pathways for healing. Clients who work with me experience me as thoughtful, grounding, and calming. They know that I will lead with compassion and consideration, even as I challenge them to expand and grow. When working with clients, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I strongly

believe in honoring clients’ histories and past experiences. They are a part of our story and they offer

insight and wisdom. I also believe in the power of the present moment and help clients cultivate awareness of themselves and of opportunities that can enhance their lives.
