“I am here to help you pursue your individual path towards growth and healing”
The cornerstone of my therapeutic work is a person-centered approach with the belief that human beings are inherently trustworthy, capable, and hold an innate ability to move towards healing when they are supported in doing so. Attachment theory also greatly informs my approach in sessions, as our early life experiences can significantly impact how we interact with others and the world around us. In sessions, I utilize a combination of evidence-based practices including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing (MI). I frequently apply interventions from narrative therapy, expressive arts therapy, strengths-based approaches, mindfulness, and self-compassion as well.
Adolescence is a transformative time that does not come without challenges. Exploring self-identity, gaining independence, navigating unfamiliar roles, and forming new relationships is not an easy feat! I am here to provide a non-judgmental, collaborative, and caring space to teens. Operating from a strengths-based perspective, I am will help you to identify personal strengths and foster resiliency to life’s challenges. A family-systems approach also informs my work as we are inextricably connected with others in our immediate environment. Whatever your current life circumstance may be, I am here to meet you where you are at.
We're Here For You
