My treatment approach is rooted in collaboration and compassion.

My Therapy Style

My treatment approach is rooted in collaboration and compassion, fostering a strong therapeutic alliance built on trust and empathy. I integrate evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques with a psychodynamic relational approach to validate clients' feelings, challenge their negative thought patterns, and equip them with the tools to overcome obstacles. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD and related disorders, and trauma. Using an empathetic, non-judgmental, empowering approach, I aim to help clients change maladaptive behaviors, increase self-esteem, reduce distress, and bolster strengths. With your goals in mind, my role is to support you in developing better understanding, creating effective coping strategies to meet life's challenges, and building confidence in your strengths and abilities.

I have a 9-year-old rescue pittie named Cassandra. She is so cuddly and energetic that she often gets mistaken for a puppy.
