Approach to Therapy:
I approach therapy from an integrative perspective, drawing primarily from psychodynamic and interpersonal theories and incorporating mindfulness-based, cognitive, and behavioral strategies, when appropriate. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation for healing and growth, thus I strive to create a warm, empathically attuned environment that facilitates enhanced self-understanding, emotional awareness and acceptance, and creative problem solving. Working within a feminist-multicultural framework, I am attentive to the multiple identities and social contexts that shape each client's experience and am deeply committed to social justice.
Approach to Wellness:
For me, wellness entails a balance between work and play, activity and stillness, and social connectedness and solitude. My primary sources of wellness are being outdoors in nature, music, photography, meditation, reading, travel, and connecting with friends, family, and nonhuman animal companions.
