About My Clients

My clients are individuals with a story, one that maybe they have struggled to understand and that they are curious about. I work extensively with indivudals who have experienced trauma, significant medical events, relationship ruptures, and who desire to grow and learn from these challenges. My expertise is in managing trauma and PTSD, managing adjustment to medical and health conditions, and managing adjustment to disabliity.

My Background and Approach

I have been practicing in this field for a total of 12 years. I started my career as a way to better understand others and to help others grow through difficult life experiences. I have trained extensively in behavioral approaches that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Committment Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I am trained in EMDR and psychodynamic therapy and I am constantly learning more ways to connect with my clients and to help them understand themselves and their experiences. As a provider in rehabilitation psychology, I partner closely with individuals who have had significant injuries (concussion and TBI, spinal cord injury, stroke, amputation) and illnesses. My approach is empathic, non-judgmental, curious, and collaborative. No one is a better expert of your life experiences than you. My hope is to use my skill and perspective to help you overcome any obstacles that have held you back.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we need others to help us grow and to become the people that we need to become. My role is to be a guide who can shift your perspective, highlight strengths, challenge negative beliefs, and illuminate important life experiences that have impacted you. I strongly believe that we all have choices and that shifting our thinking and our self talk towards self compassion helps us to embrace autonomy and chase after our goals and desires instead of feeling limited by our past and current circumstances.
