About Me

My passion for my work comes from my clients and helping them with their current problems and longstanding patterns in a caring, nonjudgmental, and insightful way.

I feel deeply honored to be a witness to clients’ secrets, struggles, triumphs, and transformations. And I am often inspired by the joint learning and collaboration that happens on this journey when working with individuals, couples, families, teens, and groups.

The treatment method I use is customized to meet your needs and may include the following:

Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Family Systems Theory, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Object Relations, Psychodynamic, Resiliency Skills, Solution-Focused Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, and Trauma Resiliency Model.

My education and training has prepared me for a wide range of concerns. In addition to working in a private-practice setting, I have also worked at the following locations:

• Community Mental Health Center
• Public Schools
• Residential Setting for Severely, Mentally Ill Adults
• Addiction and Mental Health Treatment Center

Some of my areas of specialty include the following:

• Trauma and PTSD
• Couples and Relationship Challenges
• Creative Clients
• Career Transitions
• Emotional Difficulty
• Family Members of the Mentally Ill

From my multicultural family background and doing humanitarian work abroad, I celebrate all types of diversity and various points of view.
