Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-focused, Strengths-based
Everyone faces challenges with anxiety, grief, depression or reduced self-esteem at times. I am here to provide caring, empathetic and structured support for when you’re dealing with these issues. You may also want to build upon the progress you’ve made in the past, but finding yourself stuck or without focus. Learning the triggers, tools and strategies to better understand and help manage these hurdles when they come up can have a lasting and positive impact.
As a therapist with over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked with a wide range of diverse individuals and communities. Trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (CBT), I also include Solution-Focused and Strengths-Based concepts in my therapy practice. I look forward to listening to what matters to you, and together developing and supporting your path towards renewed balance and wellness.
I also incorporate aspects of Somatic Therapy practices. As a supplement to the other tools we’ll explore, many people find that developing a more mindful, intuitive and body-focused awareness can boost progress towards their therapy and personal goals. This includes guided relaxation and sensory enhancement techniques that can be utilized beyond the therapy session, promoting a more empowered and durable sense of self. Now is a great time to begin taking these affirming steps towards your healthy and resilient future.

Having experienced the benefits of a supportive and caring advocate as a youth, I believe each of us as adults should also have access to these same resources and more, in a therapist.
I care about and take pride in seeking solutions to issues that matter to me in my community – support for unhoused communities, environmental justice and veterans.

I aim for a balance of both active and reflective time in my week. Time with friends and family is also essential.
