Psychotherapy

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I take a relational approach in psychotherapy to help you grow and heal. My goal is to empower you to make choices for a more satisfying life. My style is warm and caring while actively engaged in working through your various concerns and challenges. I am supportive and nonjudgmental as well as genuine and direct. I utilize a combination of evidence-based treatments that include cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, interpersonal, and mindfulness techniques. With my experience in focused, short-term therapy, I can help you develop and use tools to improve your symptoms. Additionally, my insight-oriented approach can help you make lasting change in your life.

I value your experiences within the context of your upbringing and lived experiences. Additionally, I always consider your cultural identities (e.g., as a woman, person of color, LGBTQ, etc.) and how they are related to your life. I provide a safe space for people with marginalized identities to feel understood and honored.
