My approach to therapy is grounded in understanding and working with the unique contexts and attributes of each person. Exploration and change occur when people feel seen and heard in a comfortable, nonjudgmental environment. I create a sense of safety through a warm, empathic and transparent style. I am flexible in my approach to therapy so that I can work compassionately and collaboratively with people toward their therapy goals. I draw upon elements from several therapies including Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I provide individual therapy to adults on a range of issues, but I have special interests in anxiety, women’s issues, grief and loss, life changes and events, and trauma. I also have a special passion for working with young adults who are navigating higher education or life transitions.
