About My Clients

I have experience working with children, adolescents, and families in a school-based setting. My ultimate goal is to help children, adolescents, and adults attain and maintain healthy, fulfilling lifestyles through skills and strategies gained through therapy. I believe that each individual has unique strengths and insights, and I strive to build upon these to support growth. Collaboratively, we can work to identify your goals for treatment and increase your insight to move towards change.

My Background and Approach

I have provided psychotherapy as a marriage and family therapist trainee for approximately 1.5 years to children and adolescents in a school-based setting. Prior to this, I was an academic tutor for approximately 7 years. With these combined experiences, I believe that I have a unique perspective and understanding. I primarily draw from a Cognitive-Behavioral lens, though I often incorporate Humanistic/Person-Centered, Narrative, Solution-Focused, and Mindfulness-based approaches into treatment. I have also completed trainings in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction. I believe that each person has special characteristics and thus, I tailor treatment to meet the specific needs of each individual. My goal is to help each individual develop adaptive coping strategies that they can incorporate no matter where they are or what situation they are in.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Each individual is shaped by their personalities, cultures, childhood experiences, relationships with themselves and others, and other social influences. We are constantly adapting and changing in response to life's circumstances. Sometimes, we may experience obstacles that prevent us from living healthy, fulfilling lives. These obstacles become all the more difficult when emotions, feelings, or behaviors are suppressed or ignored. I hope to provide a warm, supportive environment for all of my clients, where they can feel seen, heard, and understood.
