My Therapy Style

I aim to provide a therapeutic environment that is non-judgemental and collaborative. My clinical style is to lead with warmth, humor, and curiosity. I value direct and open communication so that clients can have space to be themselves and keep it real. I draw from multiple evidence-based treatments, most often integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy strategies to increase effective coping responses to life challenges.

In my work as a therapist, I've supported people from diverse sociocultural backgrounds, with a wide range of mental health challenges and lived experiences. It's my goal to build an authentic and trusting relationship with each individual so we can together engage in conversation that will promote insight and growth leading to movement in a personally meaningful direction.

Get to Know Me

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, listening to podcasts, and attempting the weekly New Yorker crossword.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

A morning routine of drinking a cup of coffee and getting some sun on my face.

What book have you read more than once?

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. I'd never read anything like this book before and couldn't put it down each time, incredible storytelling and totally singular. Also, Harry Potter! The audiobooks have become comfort food to me.

How do you recharge?

Going on a walk, spending time with close friends, or being in nature (preferably the beach).
