I view therapy as a collaborative process. I believe the client is the expert on themselves, and the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in creating change. Within that relationship, I take an integrated approach to treatment drawing from my training in evidence-based and trauma-informed theories and interventions such as polyvagal, cognitive-behavioral, somatic, EMDR, mindfulness, attachment-based modalities.
My goal is to provide a safe, genuine, and compassionate environment where individuals can process their experiences, and learn practical skills to feel better. The safe space we create in therapy helps to: establish and achieve goals; feel more present; and heal from stress, pain, and trauma that can feel unmanageable.
I understand how difficult it can be to open oneself up to vulnerability and ask for help, and am genuinely honored to be any part of your process.
I am able to provide telehealth services to those located in VA or DC.
