My therapeutic style is fluid, existential, and insight-driven. I heavily reference the arts, literary metaphor, and use humor when appropriate. I find these to be useful tools that can add color to old perspectives and create new mental associations. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, ensuring that we pay mind to your emotional, cognitive, and somatic experiences rather than just bits and pieces. I am attuned to the systemic tension that often forms between our inner world and our external social world and I strive to help you find a sense of harmony and balance between the two. I am a certified clinical trauma professional, as well as a substance use specialist. I have also completed certification trainings in DBT, CBT, MI, and ACT.
