About My Clients

I work with child, adolescent and adult clients from diverse backgrounds and use my training and understanding of human development to inform my therapeutic work and help my clients identify and understand their challenges so they can set meaningful goals. Therapy is a relationship. I believe in empowering my clients and helping them to take a collaborative role in their mental health care. Listening and getting to know you is crucial.

My Background and Approach

I work from an integrative perspective that incorporates diverse evidence-based practices. As a clinical psychologist I'm trained to provide strength-based psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, self-harm and ADHD and I've trained in psychodynamic and person-centered approaches as well as cognitive behavioral interventions such as CBT, DBT, ACT and trauma focused CBT (TF-CBT). As a teaching artist and musician, I specialize in work with performers, content creators and artists and I understand the unique challenges faced by those pursuing careers in the arts and entertainment. I've developed my own integrative style that that uses evidence based practices to focus on helping you to identify strategies that resonate with your goals. Those strategies are in collaborative consideration of your cultural background, identity and lived experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is a relationship. I believe in empowering my clients and helping them to take a collaborative role in their mental health care. I believe that our thoughts, feelings and where we are in our development all impact how we experience mental health challenges. When we feel heard and understood that expands our capacity to extend compassion to ourselves and others.
