My Background and Approach

If you find yourself feeling stuck, disconnected from others, or being overly critical of yourself, I can help you get to a place where you feel confident in yourself again and believe in your own worth. I love helping people begin living a life they find meaningful. After a challenging period during high school, I knew I wanted to help others. Early on I had a passion for women's issues and couples' therapy. This passion only continued to grow during my training and I sought experiences specifically in these areas. Through my training and work I have also developed a passion and expertise in trauma work. I had the privilege of starting to see clients in graduate school in 2008 and graduated with my doctoral degree in 2012. I worked for the VA for 5 1/2 years before beginning private practice and 4 1/2 of those years I worked exclusively with trauma. I do my best to keep up with current research and treatments and find being an adjunct professor helpful in this regard.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe therapy is best approached as a collaboration between myself and my clients. While many believe it is my job to make decisions for them, my goal is to help empower you to make the decisions that are best for you and your life. Therapy with me often invovles digging into past experiences and limiting beliefs that hold you back. Accepantance and a compassionate, mindful stance are key in doing this work. Rediscovering your voice , trusting yourself, and knowing you are enough just as you are, helps free you to feel more connected to both yourself and others. This connection can then help you create a life you love and do the things that matter to you. I am often described as practical and will give you specific skills and tools to work into your life. My clients often say I take an active approach and help them to stay focused.
