About My Clients

I work with adults and couples of all ages who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. I am trained as a generalist, and welcome clients who might present with a number of different presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family difficulties, and identity issues.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is integrative, which means that I pull from a number of different therapeutic modalities to better serve my clients and their presenting concerns. Primarily, I utilize person-centered therapy to develop rapport, provide unconditional positive regard (non-judgment) and authenticity for my clients so that a strong framework/foundation of therapy is created. Next, I typically pull from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), and Existential Therapy in order to meet my clients where they are at and address their concerns/needs accordingly. From these modalities, I utilize evidence-based techniques to further examine thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and the therapeutic relationship between myself and my client. In therapy, I aim to achieve a warm, supportive, and encouraging environment so that clients will feel safe and able to explore their concerns. I am trained in Gottman Method Level 1.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe it is imperative for me as a psychologist to approach therapy from a multicultural perspective. Each person that I meet possesses their own unique identities, values, and beliefs that they bring to the therapeutic relationship. I have found that recognizing and embracing these differences within counseling sessions can be quite powerful for clients. Furthermore, I strive to learn from my clients, as I view them as the experts of their own lives and experiences. I am an LGBTQ+ affirming and social justice-oriented therapist. I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ+ community, members of marginalized communities, and those with intersecting identities. It is a strong passion of mine to support, advocate for, and uplift members of these communities in therapy.
