I value the therapeutic relationship and feel that therapy is a collaborative approach. Each individual has their story to tell and they are the experts of their own experiences and symptoms. As you share your story with me, we will identify and create a treatment plan that works best for you based on your strengths, tools that have worked for you in in the past, and resources and recommendations from my clinical training and experience. I tend to utilize aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and/or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). We will work together to achieve your goals and we will always strive to find ways to bring greater well-being to your life.

I decided to become a mental health professional because I value supporting others, whether it’s providing a safe space for them to share their thoughts and feelings or collaborating with them to cope through situations. I believe that everyone has a story to tell that is worthy of being heard, explored, and validated.
Movement and exploring the outdoors are very important to me. I enjoy running (both trail and road), hiking, yoga, and rock climbing. I also like to spend time volunteering, as well as spend time with close family and friends.
I recharge through movement of my body whether it’s running on trails or road, rock climbing, practicing yoga and acroyoga, or breathwork. I find that where my body goes, my mind will follow.
