Center Activities

Individual Therapy

Theoretical Style

My current theoretical style is grounded in the person- centered perspective with a use of various interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, and Schema Therapy.  To translate,  I love working with client’s on identification of core beliefs that may be contributing to one’s inability to make better choices.  I firmly believe that people could do differently or make positive changes if they had the tools and knowledge.  Therefore, my sessions tend to be a combination of self-exploration as well as education and guidance on how to meet treatment goals.

Professional Interests

Substance Use, Trauma Treatment, Mindfulness

Personal Interests

Most of my time outside the office is spent loving on and caring for my two small children.  When I do have free time I enjoy doing anything active and having meaningful conversations with friends and loved ones.  I am also making an effort to do what I tell clients to do which is to increase my own self-care, put down my phone, and work on breath work and mindfulness.  I will admit that following my own advice is very challenging.
