I am secular and non judgmental. I work with my clients to establish a trusting, collaborative relationship. I utilize scientifically driven approaches such as Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to alleviate anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. I offer Written Exposure Therapy to address PTSD and distressing and interfering trauma-related symptoms.
It is a very common experience to get stuck in cycles or patterns of relating that you have identified as blocking your ability to live authentically and in a way that's meaningful to you. It is often a painful part of a personal journey of growth and healing. It’s something with which I have personal and professional experience. I work with folx who face and overcome these challenges through the support and guidance of counseling.
I believe that empathy, courage, and compassion are the paths to caring for the self and others and crucial to learning to live in a way of your choosing.
I also believe in working to address social injustices in addition to working with individuals in my practice because social injustices are connected to the pain and suffering which occurs in many individuals who are trying to heal in counseling.
