I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in working with children, adolescents, emerging adults (18-29), and adults who are touched by trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, stress, low self-esteem, perfectionism, poor body-image, negative/distorted thinking, and family of origin issues.
My style of therapy is guided by theories such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Yoga Philosophies.
I work from a collaborative and wholistic framework, validating my clients' experiences and encouraging them to recognize the avoidance patterns that, paradoxically, exacerbate rather than reduce their suffering. I believe that acceptance and mindful awareness are the first and most important steps on the pathway towards wellness.
I offer a compassionate and accepting environment where my clients feel safe to explore the things that bring them to therapy.
