About My Clients

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including community mental health, treatment centers, and private practice. My specialities include eating disorders/disordered eating, body image issues, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and spiritual issues.

My Background and Approach

I graduated with my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, with a specialization in Spiritual and Depth Psychology. While at Antioch, I studied Tibetan Buddhism in France, exploring its applications to the therapeutic process, and also in San Paulo, Brazil studying the connection between spirituality and medicine. I have since continued in both of these areas of study. During my career, I gained knowledge using both CBT and DBT and am now currently in the process of becoming a Beck Certified Clinician by the Beck Institute in Philadelphia. I now hold a certification in level one of TEAM CBT as well. I combine modalities to create a customized approach for each person, taking into account the person's individual goals, needs, and preferences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I approach therapy with the knowledge that each person is different, but by building a strong connection with empathy, understanding, and compassion, healing can begin to take place. I understand that beginning therapy can be intimidating and I work to create an environment where a person can process without judgment.

I have experience with the following
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
