6 years of experience

I have a sincere passion for working with individuals impacted by addiction, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, adjustments to major life changes/events, relationship issues, codependency, family of origin trauma, and various other complex trauma. I want to help you be the best you can be and find self-empowerment in your therapy journey. Through mindful processing and awareness building, I will help you build a foundation for healing as we carefully identify the not so great parts of your life and then pair curated and evidence based real life skills and solutions to problematic behaviors, thoughts/feelings, and experiences.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will include an evaluation and assessment of your needs and usually last 60-minutes. I prefer using a casual-conversational style to gather information about you, your background, and problem areas that have brought you to therapy. Also during this time we can both decide if I am the best person to provide the services you need to meet your treatment goals. If we agree to begin therapy, I will usually schedule one 50-minute session per week with you at a time we agree on. At anytime I encourage you to ask any questions, share any concerns or provide additional information for me as you remember things or they come up in sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked with a variety of clients in a wide range of settings (for 6 years now), I have grown most in my ability to authentically connect, empathize and validate my clients' feelings, thoughts, and experiences. I cherish social and human connections so much so that I want to be relatable to you and offer you my authentic self in a professional/therapeutic space - I purposely and intentionally strive to create a non-judgmental, safe space for my clients to find self-empowerment, a new sense of energy, and solutions to life's many stressors. At the end of the day, I am only human and so are you - so let's navigate those human experiences together!

My treatment methods

Mind-body approach

I have a passion for holistic healing modalities, such as somatic experiencing, mindfulness-meditation, and breath work. Learning how to nurture and stabilize our inner self is often the key to addressing everything else outside of our physical being. If the body is calm, it sends messages to the brain that we are safe, and we are so much better able to manage conflict and chaos in the external environment. With this approach we are reconnecting the mind and body where trauma, stress, and other strong emotional experiences have possibly created a disconnect to help us maintain our survival-based behaviors and thought patterns.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I love utilizing behavioral therapies such as CBT. My goal with this method of therapy is to place an emphasis on skills that address patterns of behavioral dysfunction and cognitive distortions (which is a fancy way of labeling 'unhealthy thinking patterns'). I teach the thoughts-feelings-behaviors cycle to my clients so we understand the connections between internal and external stimuli and how those patterns negatively affect our functioning. CBT has so much educational value and the skills are often integral in modifying our way of dealing with difficult emotions, thoughts, and behaviors - once we learn these skills, we will easily practice them in our day to day life.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I heavily utilize DBT when I need to hone in on specific skills to help you with emotion regulation and interpersonal communication skills. DBT also encompasses valuable mindfulness skills as well as distress tolerance skills (aka coping skills!) I also love this skill-based therapy approach when I am working with those who struggle with suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors, quality of life deficits, and have difficulty in troublesome relationships.

Trauma Informed Care

In every approach I use with my clients I pride myself in always being the utmost sensitive to traumatic stress and the strong emotions and mood fluctuations that come with stress, anxiety, and trauma. I am trained in Trauma-Focused CBT and well versed in somatic healing practices that also address trauma from a physiological and spiritual perspective - meaning we explore more of how the body has held onto stress and is malfunctioning due to an overload of overwhelming emotions and survival-based behaviors.
