I believe that a positive therapeutic relationship is key to one's healing process. My role is to remind you of the unique set of strengths you already possess, and to help you find creative ways to apply them to overcome adversity. My previous clinical experience includes work at a psychiatric hospital, substance abuse center, and community mental health agency. The variety of my past experiences allows me to utilize a diverse set of skills and approaches that I enjoy customizing to your unique needs and personality.
My specialties include therapy for relationship issues, children, adolescents, students, anxiety disorders and depression. I am also experienced in working with those seeking treatment for OCD and food and body image issues.
I believe in a holistic approach to mental health care. I have additional training in creative writing and yoga. I enjoy incorporating experiential therapies- such as mindfulness and meditation practices, techniques of art therapy and expressive writing, and elements of play therapy- into our work together when requested.
