What does a first session with you look like?

I like to meet people where they are at, what brings them to therapy now and help them move toward their goals, often by helping break old patterns that are not helpful or holding them back from their potential.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My therapeutic approach is integrative, drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). By incorporating these evidence-based techniques, I aim to guide clients in understanding their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Together, we work towards building trust—both in themselves and in their interactions with others.
