Approach & Specialties

My approach to therapy stems primarily from my belief that each person holds the answers to his/her/their life’s mysteries and questions within them, and through a supportive therapeutic relationship, one can gain greater understanding of their own psyche, and improve their relationship with themself and their loved ones. My work incorporates relational therapy, psychodynamic and CBT concepts, and mindfulness techniques, as well as each client’s personal world view that they bring with them into the room, including but not limited to their spirituality, religion, culture, etc. I’m also a firm believer that allowing humor and laughter in the room can be especially healing. I am an LGBTQIaffirmative therapist.

I have experience working with individuals of all ages from diverse backgrounds, varying gender/sexual identity, religion/atheism, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status, with a range of presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, toxic/abusive relationships, anger, trauma, grief, codependency, relationship issues, social anxiety, and many other challenges. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families from both underprivileged and privileged backgrounds.
