My Background and Approach

I use evidence-based therapy. What that means is that at Oasis, we offer you skills and tools you can implement right away. One of the ways we do this is by using data-driven, state-of-the-art therapy software, so we can implement feedback from your life, every session. This software keeps us closely tracking your goals, focused on reducing your symptoms, and helps you and me with early detection of ineffective therapy--all so that we get you back living the life you want. My approach to therapy is helping you find a balance between symptoms reduction right now, and looking at the deeper issues in your history that may have contributed to the most recent flare up of symptoms. By working holistically, I often find we can treat depression and anxiety symptoms without the use of medication.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

What does it feel like to be in therapy with me? I am proactive, empathic, conversational, and practical. I work with professionals and new parents, and have nearly twenty years of experience in both individual therapy and couples therapy. In our work together, you will learn to curb cyclical, negative thinking and instead focus on building healthy relationships with yourself and others. Breaking life-long habits can take time, and that's what I am here for. I will help you recognize both helpful and unhelpful patterns, and help you build skills and tools that you can put into practice right away. My role in our work is to help you overcome your fears and feelings of overwhelm, and help you strengthen your self esteem and experience of joy. I know that it can be hard to identify your strengths when you are struggling, so it will be my job to help you objectively evaluate the ways you can build on already strong skills, and empower you to feel more in control of your choices.
