Therapy Style

My approach during therapy is that it is not "one size fits all". I work to meet my client where they are and create treatment plans together to work on what they are struggling with in their day to day. We use our sessions to discuss negative thoughts or feelings and work on challenging them together.

I recognize that seeking out therapy can be difficult; I approach my clients with empathy and understanding. I am strength-based and present-focused – looking for the good and reminding my clients that we can glance at the future or the past, but we can't stare.

Being a certified yoga instructor has helped me as a clinician by incorporating mindfulness into sessions including meditation, chair yoga, mantras and positive self-talk during sessions as needed.

Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

When I was in middle school, a friend was struggling with their mental health. At the time I had no idea how to help them - since then I wanted to learn how to help those struggling with their mental health.

What are your interests outside of work?

Hiking or anything outdoors, taking or teaching yoga classes, spending time with friends and family, reading mystery novels.

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

Movement (yoga or spin are my favorites!) and meditation.

How do you recharge?

Lighting some candles, making myself some tea, and watching a favorite show or reading a good book.

Do you have any pets?

Bodhi! My cat is the most dog-like cat you'll meet. He greets me at the door when I get home and loves belly rubs and meeting new people. Bodhi is always finding new ways to cause mischief, once jumping from my fridge to hang from a closet door until I rescued him.
