About My Clients

I have been in practice since 2016 and work with a variety of clients from a variety of backgrounds. My primary specialty involves working 1:1 with adults experiencing issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, substance abuse, trauma, or who experience any sort of difficulty managing chronic medical conditions.

My Background and Approach

I have years of experience in the field of Health Psychology. Broadly speaking, health psychology is concerned with the interplay between our physical health and emotional health. We often think of these as two separate things, but the truth is that they are inexorably linked; when you feel bad in one you usually feel bad in the other. The good news is that it works the other way too -- caring for your mental health has a multitude of positive impacts. I have a great deal of experience with many therapeutic strategies that can aid in this regard, including behavioral techniques, cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness/meditation skills, and more. Nobody is born knowing how to deal with issues like stress, trauma, anxiety, or depression, and often the last people we consider deserving of care are ourselves. Self-care is a skill, and like any skill it gets easier with practice and support.
