Welcome! Individuals I support typically come to therapy for a safe space to work through issues with anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, perfectionism, or just feeling stuck.
I work mainly with Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), which aims at developing greater psychological flexibility through mindfulness and acceptance skills in order to navigate challenges, but draw from other evidence-based methods as well, tailored to each individual's needs and experiences. Additionally, I have training in trauma-informed practices, and neuropsychotherapy which is a “brain-based” approach that incorporates education on how our brain and nervous system work together while informing strategies to create lasting change in our thought patterns and behaviors.
I hold a Masters Degree (M.Ed) in Guidance and Counseling, and while I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, as a former School Counselor, I am also passionate about supporting educators and the unique challenges they face.
