I have extensive training and experience using the following approaches in therapy: cognitive- behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment-based treatments, emotion focused therapy, emotion-focused couples therapy with trauma survivors, integrative behavioral couple therapy, compassion-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches. I help my patients learn and heal from their past experiences, then focus their attention on the present by supporting them to take action by modifying unproductive thought patterns, managing their emotions, and replacing unhealthy habits with healthy and productive behaviors. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process with an emphasis on a warm, compassionate, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. I will support you in increasing your self-awareness and developing the skills needed to create positive changes in your life. I look forward to getting to know you, understanding your unique challenges and meeting you exactly where you are today.
