I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and their families in order to provide a therapeutic environment that is safe, comfortable, and individualized. I believe that all humans have the capability to be extremely resilient, even when facing the toughest of circumstances, when offered the right support. I am trained in psychodynamic therapy and utilize a diversity of approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I believe that a close and trusting relationship with the client is essential to instilling positive growth and change. Once a positive relationship is established, I believe individuals can better understand emotion, identify patterns in interactions, find their inner voice, and learn healthier coping mechanisms. I take great pride in getting to know my clients and their hobbies/skills, and like to incorporate my own interests of animals, exercise, and holistic health.
