I have been working in community mental health and private practice since 2015. Clients who have found working with me helpful include trauma survivors, those suffering from symptoms related to mood and anxiety disorders, and those dealing with stress in romantic and family relationships.
My therapy style has been influenced by my experience and training in mindfulness, emotion-focused, and acceptance-based models. I believe that for change and healing to occur, we have to get comfortable in the uncomfortable by accessing our true feelings and emotions. In our sessions, my job is to create safety for us to "go there". Together, we can confront what is bringing you to therapy and create a plan for you to reach your mental health goals. I'll be with you at every step!

I enjoy yoga, meditation, spending time with my pets, friends, and family, cooking, and traveling.
I spend 15-20 minutes every morning in my mindfulness/breathwork practice.
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I first read it around the time I became a psych major in college and had been trying to figure out who I was. It was seminal in my development, and I revisit it every couple of years to evaluate my progress in life against those of Eugenides' beloved characters.
I have an orange cat named Archie and a terrier mix named Salma. They are best friends and enjoy snacking, napping, playing, and hunting together!
