About My Clients

I work with older teens and adults struggling with the rigor of high school and college. Often people are struggling with academics, relationships, decision-making, all of these, or a combination of these. Trying to find your place in the world and figure out who are in your career and relationships? I've worked with many grown-ups that don't feel so grown-up because they're still struggling with these questions.

My Background and Approach

I understand and appreciate that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Sometimes you want short-term help to navigate and cope with a particularly challenging or stressful life experience. Sometimes you prefer longer-term therapy that builds on the learning and self-discovery realized along the way. Together, we can develop a treatment plan that meets your needs. I will work to understand how you are uniquely you, because I understand that all mental health issues don't fit the textbook description. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help you identify and acknowledge disruptive or debilitating thoughts and behaviors that are barriers to understanding and achieving their full potential. I integrate other approaches that 'play well with' CBT to help with stumbling blocks and provide more insight on your problem. I also integrate mindfulness into my practice and am happy to introduce you to its benefits as well.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that you have got this and that you matter... even when you don't believe it. We will get through this, whatever this is, together.
