“I view therapy as a chance to collaborate with individuals in a warm, safe environment to build their most meaningful lives. I draw primarily from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, with elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, to help clients identify what is important to them, set goals, and develop lifelong skills and habits to engage with these values and goals. I have specific expertise treating anxiety, insomnia, and depression. I have additional focus areas in autism spectrum disorder and women’s mental health.”
