Approach to Therapy:
My approach to therapy is trauma-informed, integrative, and collaborative, drawing from a variety of treatment modalities depending on each individual's needs and goals. I draw from from cognitive, psychodynamic, and mindfulness approaches, grounded in a feminist and multicultural framework, and have a growing interest in internal family systems/parts work and somatic psychotherapy practices. I aim to create a compassionate, supportive, and strengths-based therapeutic environment where individuals are able to explore their areas of concern with curiosity and self-compassion, and work toward healing, growth, and connection.
Approach to Wellness:
My approach to wellness includes a balance of rest and activities that help me feel centered and connected to myself and others. I enjoy quiet time at home to read or watch a favorite show, trying out new recipes and restaurants, spending time with family and friends, practicing yoga and hiking, going to concerts and shows, and traveling and exploring new places.
