My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for my clients to explore emotions, life experiences, and ways to improve quality of life. Whether this is your first therapy experience, or you’ve done this before, I will endeavor to meet you exactly where you are in your life journey. My approach is rooted in mindfulness, and together we tailor your interventions to meet your specific needs. I believe in the benefits of acknowledging vulnerabilities, difficult behaviors, and unpleasant feelings, while also encouraging my clients to remain grounded in their unique set of strengths and values.

ExperienceI have experience in evidence-based interventions like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing (MI), solutions-focused therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills (DBT). Previously I worked in primary care offices providing short-term counseling to patients experiencing anything from depression and anxiety, to life stress, to processing a new medical diagnosis. I also have experience in crisis intervention from my time working in inpatient psychiatry and the Emergency Department.
