“I serve adults who are experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties and those who wish to live more fully. I seek to be attuned and collaborative. My style is heavily influenced by acceptance and commitment therapy and various cognitive behavioral therapies, which I balance with holding space for my clients’ inner wisdom to guide our work. I seek to bring humility and curiosity to the complexities that cultural and family-of-origin influences present to my clients.”
