My therapeutic work is grounded in an interpersonal approach and is highly integrative. This means that I regard relationships as fundamental to our experiences as people. Similarly, I hold deep respect for the therapeutic relationship and view it as paramount to the therapeutic process. When I sit with you, I bring my authentic self into the room along with genuine compassion, warmth, and nonjudgment. People who work with me feel safe, understood, respected, and empowered in our relationship. This space is necessary for change and often is the core avenue for healing.

I am attentive to the unique needs of each person I sit with and am flexible, creative, and collaborative in my treatment approach. While my work is grounded in an interpersonal approach, I consistently integrate various therapeutic approaches based on a person’s needs, preferences, culture, context, as well as literature on what is effective. Humanistic, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Experiential Therapy are some of the therapeutic approaches I routinely draw from to enhance my work.

It is important that my work is effective for you. I collaborate with my clients to develop shared goals and maintain an ongoing dialogue that is welcoming of feedback and involves assessing our progress as we go.
