Having received my M.A. in Clinical Psych, I am passionate about the marriage of science and art that exists in the practice of psychotherapy. I seek to bring evidence-based practices into the therapy room if helpful, but first and foremost, I show up as a fellow human there to stand witness to your pain, your truth, your vulnerability, and your process.
I have worked in a variety of settings as a therapist - with university students at a Bible college, with young children conducting play and art therapy, with first-generation individuals and Victims of Crime (VOC) through a non-profit, trauma-focused mental health treatment center, and also at IOP and PHP level of care with folks struggling with eating disorders.
My ED work has been the most influential; I tend to practice from a DBT framework and utilize interventions and skills where appropriate. Above all that, however, Attachment Theory underscores all of my work, and I thus strive to create a corrective experience for clients.
