About My Clients

Are you seeking inner peace and looking to make the first step towards feeling better? I work with adults of all backgrounds and seek to create a warm, safe, and nonjudgmental space for each client. Together, we will work to identify unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviors that hinder you from creating a fulfilling and satisfying life. I meet you where you are and help you build the necessary skills to enhance your emotional health and improve your interpersonal relationships.

My Background and Approach

My approach focuses on looking at the whole person, not just you as you are in the snapshot of this moment. We are all affected by our life experiences, which influence the way we see ourselves and the world around us. I specialize in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which incorporates mindfulness, communication, and emotion regulation skills to help clients decrease unwanted thoughts, emotions, behaviors and move towards acceptance. I am passionate about helping clients with anxiety, depression, impulsivity, relationship issues, and difficulties with communication. I strive to create a healing space for clients to share personal experiences while working together to improve daily functioning and overall wellbeing. I am grateful for the opportunity to walk side by side with my clients through the ups and downs of life. I provide trauma-informed treatment and am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that no matter how difficult life's challenges may appear, there is always the opportunity for growth, healing, and change. I look forward to helping you build the life that you want to live. I support the LGBTQ community and the Black Lives Matters movement.
