Therapy Style

I specialize in working with those dealing with depression, anxiety, and women’s issues. I have more than 10 years of experience working with parents of children with disabilities and offering individual therapy to adolescents and adults with varying developmental disabilities. I utilize a holistic approach and incorporate techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, solution-focused therapy, as well as others.

I aim to offer a safe, therapeutic space in which we can work together to determine the right tools to help you lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. I am passionate about working with individuals to build self-esteem, challenge negative thoughts, and enhance relationships with others and with oneself.

I believe that mental health and physical health are strongly connected and often encourage time outdoors, exercise, and self-care strategies to those who find themselves dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, chronic pain, and other medical conditions.
