My Approach: I believe therapy is a collaborative and creative endeavor, and provide a safe and supportive environment in the therapy room for you to explore your identity, relationships, history, and desired changes. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you create lasting, tangible changes in your life, often after just a few weeks or months in therapy. Using this empowering approach with scientifically supported effectiveness, I can partner with you to learn concrete skills for mindfulness, relaxation and self-care while also helping you learn to change how you think, feel, and interact with the world. I am also influenced by Gestalt, Narrative, Relational, and Systemic approaches to therapy, and will provide you with an integrated approach to therapy that is tailored to your specific goals and style. I view life as an ongoing journey where even our most difficult moments provide us with opportunities to grow, change, heal, and connect more deeply with ourselves and others. I would be honored to walk with you on this portion of your journey.
