My Ideal Client

As a counselor, I want to listen, respect, understand, and help you improve your mental health. Together, we can share a collaborative, therapeutic space where we explore paths that can lead to growth and healing.

My Approach to Helping

Where there is hope and empathy, there is a way. I enjoy helping clients address and overcome difficult challenges in their lives. I've worked as a trauma counselor, and I've treated clients who struggle with anxiety and depression. In addition to my counseling experience, I've worked with kids and adults to improve their executive functioning. The healing process is a journey and I feel honored to walk beside my clients.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe that mental health is not black and white. It is a fluid process. Achieving optimal wellness requires engagement and a desire to expand one's outlook to include new perspectives and possibilities. To that end, I understand the most effective therapists are those who invest in their clients and make an effort to understand each client's unique culture, needs, strengths, challenges, and goals. Providing empathy, hope and support are crucial to a successful client/therapist relationship. When clients have the right therapeutic tools and a trusting therapeutic relationship, including space that is safe and collaborative, growth and healing are both exciting and possible.

Techniques I Use


  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) External link

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and the more specialized approach of Exposure and Response Prevention have been shown repeatedly to be the most effective treatment interventions for anxiety and related disorders, including OCD. CBT is the process of understanding the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors and how we can use changes in thoughts and behaviors to affect change in feelings.

  • Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy External link

    ERP is the gold standard for treating OCD and other anxiety disorders. It is evidence based and highly effective. This is a behavioral intervention that we will work together to implement. I believe it is important to teach my clients as much as possible about these treatment approaches so that there is a thorough understanding of how they work and why they work!

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    I provide CBT-based therapy to kids and adults struggling with anxiety and OCD. I also have experience as an executive function coach, addressing EF challenges that can cause and increase anxiety for kids and adults. Prior to coaching, I counseled families and individuals who had experienced trauma due to a sudden shift in family attachment patterns.
