Approach to Therapy:
I aim to understand people's identities and experiences in my clinical work through a psychodynamic perspective with a relational emphasis, as we are shaped by and exist within the experiences we share with others. As a clinical psychologist in training, I also value the need for an open mind in incorporating perspectives and techniques beyond those of psychodynamics to most effectively understand and assist the clients with whom I work. I have found this involving my incorporation of cognitive-behavioral, multicultural, and family systems theory and practice.
Approach to Wellness:
Although it is easy to be swept into the busyness of work, school, etc., I try to be intentional in setting aside time each day, even just an hour or two, to do something simply for my own enjoyment to regather and recharge. I enjoy exercising (I love swimming, especially), spending time in nature during all seasons, listening to music, laughing and chatting with friends and family, and baking.
