My Approach

I truly believe that you are the expert of your own life, whether you are 9 or 92, and I use that as a foundation for our collaborative therapeutic relationship. You bring your own life experiences to the session and I bring an empathetic presence and client-centered, strengths-based approach to help you through whatever is on your mind. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all activity and I tailor my sessions to find what works best for you and welcome any and all feedback in that journey. Some of the evidence-based therapeutic modalities I use in session to help with that are Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and more. Whether you want to work on new coping strategies for anxiety, talk through life’s stresses or explore your sense of identity, this is a refuge for you to come into your best self.
