My Background and Approach

I use evidence-based therapy. What that means is that at Oasis, we offer you skills and tools you can implement right away. One of the ways we do this is by using data-driven, state-of-the-art therapy software, so we can implement feedback from your life, every session. This software keeps us closely tracking your goals, focused on reducing your symptoms, and helps you and me with early detection of ineffective therapy--all so that we get you back living the life you want. My approach to therapy is helping you find a balance between symptoms reduction right now, and looking at the deeper issues in your history that may have contributed to the most recent flare up of symptoms. By working holistically, I often find we can treat depression and anxiety symptoms without the use of medication.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal as your therapist is to help you know yourself better and increase your resilience to life's stressors. ​ What does it feel like to be in therapy with me? ​ I am relaxed and informal, and completely present with you. I strive to make your therapy a place you want to come to. In my twenty years of experience doing this work, I have come to realize that a therapeutic space is a comfortable one, where you can feel free to be yourself. We collaborate on your therapy, so that we are equal participants in that process. I believe in transparency in your treatment, so that you always understand what we are doing, and can take pride and ownership over your work. I will frequently check in with you to see how the therapy is going from your point of view, and will use that feedback to calibrate and sharpen our work together. I see my role as walking alongside you as you get to know yourself better and begin setting goals that are consistent with your personal beliefs.
