About My Clients
It's easy to get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns such as "I should do more" and "I shouldn't worry about that." Creating balance in our lives may not always be easy, but it's possible. Seeking the support of a psychologist can be a powerful step towards making a difference in your life. I focus on collaborating with my clients to set goals in unison. I aim to help you develop more adaptive ways to cope with distress and to ultimately make supportive life changes.
My Background and Approach
I am a Cognitive-Behavioral therapist by training, and integrate concepts of mindfulness and acceptance in my work. I specialize in Exposure and Response Prevention where I encourage you to lean in to discomfort while re-gaining confidence to face otherwise avoided experiences. I have worked across various levels of care including residential, intensive outpatient and outpatient therapy for both eating disorders and OCD. I also specialize in anxiety disorders, depression, and trauma. I offer in-person, teletherapy and home sessions as well as ERP work in and out of the office. I am a co-founder of Home For Balance Psychotherapy Group, where I currently conduct individual, group and family therapy.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that you are your own expert. My role in our time together is to provide you with a non-judgemental supportive environment in which you can explore and develop supportive life changes that are aligned with your own goals and values. I also believe in the value of supporting our local communities and shattering the stigma of mental illness. I volunteer with the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness and run their Saturday Pro Recovery Support group. I am a proud supporter of the LGBT community and my practice is inclusive. I also partake in other community events such as suicide prevention events, and OCD awareness and education programs.
