My Approach

I believe in the healing power of therapy. It feels almost magical to sit with a client and see them shed self-judgement, build self-trust, and discover it is possible to transform the old stories and experiences that keep them feeling heavy and disconnected. My approach to therapy is grounded in curiosity and respect. I create a space that honors your difficulties, supports your successes, and asks the questions that move you towards living a more satisfying life. I provide warmth and comfort when needed and also ask the tough questions that keep you moving forward. I practice therapy from a relational and psychodynamic perspective and incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (DBT & CBT) when indicated.

My Background

I have a strong background in providing therapy for individuals with trauma, disordered eating, chronic dieting, body dissatisfaction, anxiety, and questions about who they are and what they want from life. Since 2010 I have worked in a variety of settings in the mental health field: inpatient psychiatric mental health, community mental health, mental health research, and private practice. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and am currently a provider-in-training through Be Nourished’s Body Trust® certification program. I am under the supervision of Karen Hixson, PhD, LPC. My practice is currently full. I anticipate taking new clients in September 2019.
