My Background and Approach
I have provided mental health counseling services to youth, adults, and families to address symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating, and life transitions since 2014. I have worked in community mental health, private practice, and more intensive care (partial hospitalization) settings. Radiant Resilience Psychotherapy is a trauma informed practice, where evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Expressive Arts (art, play, etc), Strength-Based, and Narrative Therapies are utilized. It is an honor and privilege for me to walk alongside of you in pursuit of your goals – which will be the focus of our continued work together.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in resilience and healing, in whatever ways these are defined by individuals and families. As a therapist, I practice from an integrative approach, utilizing the therapeutic approach(es) that best meet the needs of the people I have the privilege to work alongside. Compassion and trauma informed care are at the center of my practice. I am pursuing certifications and trainings related to specializing and working with individuals impacted by trauma in addition to disrupted relationships with bodies and food. My practice strives to offer weight inclusive care; I hope to create a brave space through utilizing principles from Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating principles in addition to mental health counseling modalities. I advocate for the best care for those I work with, as well as hope to educate other providers on trauma informed and inclusive care.
