Message to clients

In my work as a therapist, I employ an integrative approach to treatment. I strive to utilize my patients' current struggles to help them learn more effective ways to cope and reflect on the patterns and themes that emerge so they can develop a deeper understanding of themselves. I focus on symptom relief at the outset to ensure that my patients have the coping skills they need to decrease their anxiety or mood symptoms. I am an open and warm therapist and strive to make each of my patients feel seen, heard, and understood.

I am comfortable working with individuals of all ages but the majority of my practice is devoted to the treatment of teens and young adults as well as women in different stages of their reproductive journey. As a mom of four, I enjoy working with new and expectant moms to help them gain the confidence to become the parents they strive to be while not losing themselves in the process.

I am currently only seeing patients through telehealth but plan to return to in-person sessions in the near future.
