“Therapy can transform both our inner and outer worlds by helping us to process the past, release what does not serve us, and enjoy the present. It’s my passion to be there for others to walk this path, and experience all the discovery, emotion, and healing that it brings.
I listen carefully and deeply, and strive to create a nonjudgmental and warm space in which it is easy to express yourself and participate. I value a collaborative relationship in which we agree together on how to move forward. My work is informed by research in order to provide care that is based on evidence. I integrate multicultural perspectives and the diversity of lived experiences, including experiences of systemic oppression.
My areas of expertise include trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety disorders, health behavior changes, and couple’s therapy. In my approach, I draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy (including DBT, exposure therapy, and CPT for PTSD), psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness tools, depending on the needs and preferences of each individual.”
