Approach to Therapy:
My approach to therapy is integrative and evidence-based. As I believe each student is unique, the mechanisms of change I utilize vary based on the student, their circumstances, and their therapeutic goals (e.g., ACT, DBT, CBT, MI, psychodynamic, etc.). However, with every student my approach is grounded in feminist, multicultural, holistic, and trauma-informed lenses. I am intentional in my effort to see and help my clients see their own strengths, resilience, and to feel worthy, hopeful, and empowered.
Approach to Wellness:
I believe each person is trying their best to thrive in the circumstances in which they've found themselves and with the resources at their disposal. There are several practices I see as key to promoting wellness, including mindfulness, gratitude, humility, empathy, and connecting to others and nature. I incorporate these practices in my own life through my appreciations of reading, running, gardening, live music, and being in the company of people I love.
