Approach to Therapy:
I use an integrative approach to therapy, finding treatments that best match the clients' needs. My work is influenced by psychodynamic principles, DBT, ACT, and strength-based perspectives. I aim to provide a supportive, non-judgmental space where clients can feel safe to explore their areas of concern.
Approach to Wellness:
I truly feel that as clinicians, we need to believe what we are selling. Therefore, when I encourage students to prioritize their self-care, I take this challenge myself and try to incorporate wellness and stress reduction into my daily life. I enjoy making time to laugh, try new things, practice self-compassion, and remain physically active.
