My Treatment Approach:

Therapy looks different for different people. I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a collaborative, authentic relationship. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, expressing, connecting, and relating. I specialize in working with anxiety and work from a holistic, integral model of therapy, supporting the innate human capacity to heal within the safety of the therapeutic relationship. I incorporate a psychoeducational approach into my practice, offering an individualized collection of resources and interventions. I am passionate about facilitating client insight and well-being. I provide my clients with a sense of warmth and compassion through my intuitive nature, humor and interactive therapeutic style. I believe it is my privilege to be welcomed into your world and to become a partner in your healing.
