Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

We are all driven by connection, but that first begins with the relationship with ourselves. Through self-compassion and empathy, all things are possible. Anyone with the strong desire to heal and the willingness to do the work can achieve more satisfying relationships with self and others.

My Approach

My approach with my clients is one of collaboration and strong teamwork. I favor a directive, psychoeducational way of working with my clients and believe in empowering them with knowledge and tools. As a therapist I join each of my client's in their subjective world, endeavoring to understand them deeply and support their process, whatever their healing or life goals may be. Because we are all different, I don't work the same way with anyone, and adapt my approach to the needs of my clients. What therapy is to each person is a unique experience. Some need to resolve a crisis or grapple with a life transition or loss. Others want to focus on perceived blocks to moving forward into a state of greater mental wellness. Still others need to re-work their difficult attachments to early caregivers and require a longer therapeutic relationship. After a therapeutic relationship has been established, I make myself available to my clients for booster sessions when the need arises.

My Background

Prior to my psychotherapy career I was a journalist and professional writer. People's stories have always been what compelled me and drove me to understand and connect on a deeper level. In graduate school I focused on equity and inclusion, addictions and trauma, and my earlier career experience was in residential and outpatient treatment. Gradually I began to focus on intersectional approaches to mental health and have experience in treating mood disorders, PTSD, addictions, eating disorders, loss, and relationship patterns. As a Marriage and Family therapist I work with adolescents, couples, families, and individuals. I am trained in EMDR and mindfulness modalities such as third-wave CBT and DBT. Currently I am a clinical director focused on social justice programming in mental health care, as well as a clinical supervisor of student and graduate interns. In my free time I blog about intimate partner violence and advocate for abuse survivors.
