You have taken the first step towards making a change, which is often the hardest. If you’re new to therapy, it is normal to feel unsure, cautious, or even scared. I believe my work is a calling, and I am privileged to start this journey with you!

​My approach is driven by the therapeutic alliance you and I will use to identify what is most important to you. Through that we will create meaningful change together, whether that be through building a skills “tool belt,” implementing solution-focused exercises, or simply prioritizing a safe space for processing your emotions and allowing you to be heard. I can promise you a nonjudgmental presence and unconditional positive regard towards you as a person, whose life experiences and emotions matter.
How I Work

While my treatment areas primarily include depression and anxiety, I have also walked alongside clients as they navigate adjustments to major life stressors and transitions, such as divorce, loss, and illness. While I draw from different evidence based practices, my orientation is based in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. We will examine how your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors interact through a non-judgmental, present focused lense. I am also experienced in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), a highly effective treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). While I have treated clients across the lifespan, my training and experience has focused on adolescents and young adults, as I deeply value joining individuals as they traverse these exciting and challenging transitional times.​
