Who I typically see:

​I work primarily with millennials struggling with relationship difficulties, life stressors & transitions, quarter life crises, burnout, trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, anger problems, & psychosis. I also have experience working with the LGBTQ+ population and law enforcement/first responders.


I additionally work with millennial therapists seeking clinical supervision toward their CAC, LAC, and/or LPC.

 

What to expect in therapy with me:

My style is humanistic/person-centered, collaborative, solution-focused, and strengths-based. I believe that my clients are ultimately the experts on their own lives. 


My training has largely been based in motivational interviewing (MI), a method that helps an individual to resolve any ambivalence and find the internal motivation to make desirable changes in their life. I pull heavily from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which focuses on teaching skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and developing better relationship and communication skills. I also frequently use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) which can help to change unhelpful thinking patterns to improve the way one feels. Additionally, I utilize eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a type of trauma therapy which mimics REM sleep in order to work through painful memories and make them less distressing. I also offer ear acupuncture (NADA 5 point acudetox) during therapy sessions which can aid with sleep, anxiety, cravings, and mood improvement.
