My style is warm, collaborative, genuine, and rooted in a social justice orientation. Expect direct communication and a sprinkle of humor.
In my practice, I employ client-centered, integrative, evidenced-based techniques drawn from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), multicultural therapy, mindfulness, and applied behavior analysis (ABA). My approach emphasizes strengths and resilience. The goals of our work together will be to reduce suffering, improve coping, and increase value-driven behaviors in a way that is meaningful to you.
