My approach to psy­chother­a­py uses an inte­gra­tive approach by apply­ing tech­niques from sev­er­al evi­dence-based ther­a­peu­tic styles, includ­ing cog­ni­tive behav­ioral ther­a­py (CBT), accep­tance and com­mit­ment ther­a­py (ACT), and pos­i­tive psy­chol­o­gy to best tai­lor treat­ment to each indi­vid­ual client. I attempt to main­tain a rela­tion­al style through­out the ther­a­peu­tic process and val­ue the use of humor and com­pas­sion to strength­en the ther­a­peu­tic rela­tion­ship. I pri­or­i­tize cre­at­ing and main­tain­ing a strong ther­a­peu­tic rela­tion­ship, as well as a safe and invit­ing envi­ron­ment to help each client reach their max­i­mum poten­tial through facil­i­tat­ing self-explo­ration, striv­ing toward per­son­al growth, and devel­op­ing prac­ti­cal strate­gies to cre­ate change.

Clinical Interests

My clin­i­cal inter­ests include work­ing with chil­dren, ado­les­cents, and adults who are expe­ri­enc­ing dif­fi­cul­ties in life due to symp­toms of anx­i­ety, depres­sion, adjust­ment and change, and oth­er life stres­sors. Togeth­er, we will work towards improv­ing qual­i­ty of life through self-explo­ration, devel­op­ing healthy and effec­tive cop­ing strate­gies, and build­ing upon strengths and values.

Personal Interests

Out­side of work I enjoy spend­ing time with fam­i­ly and friends, thrift shop­ping, re-watch­ing Friends and New Girl, and read­ing cheesy mys­tery novels
