What is your style/approach to therapy?

With over 10 years of experience, I offer a warm, relatable, direct and often humorous approach. I draw from an eclectic array of therapeutic modalities and my approach will vary depending on your specific needs. I focus on treating root causes, not just symptoms. I believe the highest knowledge of the self comes from within and our life experiences have the power to shape how we relate to ourselves, others and the world around us. Sometimes our experiences have brought pain or other emotions that have caused us to disconnect. I believe we have learned ways to protect ourselves from unbearable pain by denying our true desires, wants, and needs. When we deny parts of ourselves, we suffer, feel lost, stuck, broken, and hopeless. Let’s try something different by dismantling old stories that are not ours to hold, dive into your truth and rewrite the script. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
