I was drawn to becoming a therapist because of my own healing journey. I remain passionate about the work because of the growth and healing I have the honor of co-creating and witnessing in others. My approach is holistic and eclectic, with a large focus on helping you learn about your brain and body, relate to your thoughts and emotions in a healthy way, and take committed action toward whatever is most important to you. To do that, I use psychoeducation, breathwork, movement, coping skills, thinking strategies, mindfulness, and exposures if necessary. In addition to being a clinical social worker, I am also trained as a yoga teacher and can weave that into our work together. I am trained in the treatment of trauma as well as ACT and ERP.
My top priority is for your body and brain to feel safe, accepted, and free to be exactly yourself in my presence. In the intake process, I will ask questions about your life and try to get a full picture of your challenges, strengths, and goals. I will also complete a few assessments based on your presenting issues. It is important to get a baseline for your symptoms and goals so that we can regularly track your progress through re-evaluations and make sure this relationship is serving you well. Therapy with me is an active healing process of learning about yourself and gaining the tools to live a full, meaningful life. Often, I will teach something in session, we will practice together, and I will then send you out to practice throughout your week. The following week will start with how that went and working through any barriers to success.
