“Therapy is a highly personal and unique process and I strive to meet you where you are in your life with a genuine and non-judgmental approach. We will work together to collaboratively identify where you feel stuck, to explore your values and what brings your life meaning, and to gain a deeper understanding of yourself both individually and in relation to others. We will also seek to increase your sense of self, mindfulness, and self-compassion in the service of pursuing a life that brings you authenticity and purpose. My approach integrates and tailors evidence-based therapies such as DBT, ACT, CPT, EFT for couples, and others with a foundation in psychodynamic and attachment theory. My primary clinical interests are working with adults with complex trauma, PTSD, Functional Neurological Disorder, and personality, mood, and anxiety disorders. I welcome all races, all ethnicities, all genders, all sexual orientations, all relationship structures, all religions, all countries of origin, and all abilities.”
