I am a creative, collaborative, and challenging psychotherapist. It is an honor to be a witness to your vulnerabilities and hold space for your pain as you explore your purpose.

I recognize the impact of societal-structures on mental health and aim to help you reframe challenges in ways that empower you. To manage strong emotions, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is an effective tool that promotes whole body regulation and lasting calmness. If unaddressed core beliefs from the past have latched onto the present and you are concerned about your future, you have the power to achieve balance.

When reflecting, I utilize a psychodynamic approach to help you identify the origin of strong emotions and determine how your core beliefs are serving you. I consider the bravery it takes to make changes that will ultimately affect your family system and move at your pace with an integration of the above approaches.

ABOUT

Bean and Leaf Juice Enthusiast, Cookie-baker, Leisure Leader, Playful Pal

I am a plant parent, a foodie, and a bundle of “golden retriever energy” in the presence of an adventure. I value service, humility, compassion, self-expression, community, and future generations. If I am not in the office or at home, I am likely spending time with like-minded friends or family, getting coffee/tea, running, reading or spending time in nature.
