I offer a warm and safe environment for self-exploration. I will listen to your concerns and help you explore solutions using a strengths-based model of care. I embrace the wonderful diversity of people and identities, and will respect your cultural heritage. My goal is to give you the tools to become a more effective manager of your own life, whether that involves addressing and treating mental health needs, a career decision-making process, or educational/learning support.
I am an eclectic/integrative therapist, which means that I use a variety of evidence-based skills derived from psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, and existential traditions. I also incorporate narrative therapy since your story and life experiences are the lens with which you view and experience the world.
I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified DBT therapist, and EMDR trained clinician. I help individuals and couples work through and resolve past anxieties and traumatic experiences in order to live more fully, freely, and joyfully in the present and future.
I have a strong understanding of the brain, its functional areas, and will incorporate practical applications of neuroscience into our work.
Our work together will emphasize your health and wellness through active listening, experiential activities, individual reflection, developing perspective and insight, providing support related to personal decision-making, and helping you develop action steps to achieve your stated educational, career, personal growth, or therapeutic treatment goals.
I am happy to connect with you for a free 15-minute consultation to determine whether we could be a good therapeutic fit. Contact info can be accessed here.
