I am an experienced Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) with a strong focus on helping high school aged and older individuals navigate challenges such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, and trauma/PTSD. With eight years of practice, I provide compassionate and evidence-based therapy to create a safe space for clients to explore their concerns and foster healing and growth to become the best versions of themselves.

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

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

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

As a provider, my greatest strengths lie in my ability to cultivate a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment, fostering trust and open communication with my clients. I have a deep empathy and understanding of the unique challenges faced by high school age and older individuals, allowing me to tailor my approach to meet their specific needs effectively. Additionally, my extensive experience and ongoing commitment to professional development ensure that I am equipped with the latest therapeutic techniques and insights to support my clients on their journey towards healing and growth.

My treatment methods

Psychodynamic

As an experienced MFT with eight years of practice, I bring a profound understanding of the complexities within interpersonal relationships and family dynamics. My approach is deeply rooted in the psychodynamic model, allowing me to skillfully navigate the unconscious processes and unresolved conflicts that shape individuals' behaviors and interactions. With empathy and insight, I aim to create a safe therapeutic space where clients can explore underlying emotions, patterns, and attachment dynamics, fostering profound self-awareness and facilitating transformative growth.

Trauma Informed Care

I specialize in providing compassionate and effective therapy grounded in trauma-informed care. With a deep understanding of how trauma impacts individuals and families, I prioritize creating a safe and supportive environment where healing can take place. My approach integrates evidence-based techniques tailored to each client's unique needs, fostering resilience and empowerment. By utilizing trauma-informed principles, I strive to promote healing, restore hope, and facilitate meaningful transformation in the lives of those I serve.

Motivational Interviewing

I specialize in utilizing motivational interviewing as a powerful treatment method to facilitate positive change and growth. Through empathetic listening and collaborative exploration, I work closely with individuals to elicit their intrinsic motivations for change. My approach emphasizes respect, autonomy, and empowerment, guiding clients towards their goals with compassion and support. By harnessing the principles of motivational interviewing, I empower clients to uncover their strengths, overcome obstacles, and make sustainable changes that lead to lasting fulfillment and well-being.
