My ther­a­peu­tic approach is one based on dia­logue, mutu­al respect and per­son­al growth. My goal is to wel­come you into a calm­ing space where togeth­er we can focus on your strengths and resilien­cy to rewrite any dis­tort­ed self-nar­ra­tives, unlearn habit­u­al thoughts and pat­terns that no longer serve you to find heal­ing for your mind, body and spir­it. I use mod­ern tech­niques root­ed in neu­ro­science, psy­choe­d­u­ca­tion and sys­tems per­spec­tive while com­bin­ing solu­tion-focused modal­i­ties and per­son-cen­tered tech­niques such as active and reflec­tive lis­ten­ing, val­i­da­tion, mind­ful­ness, Moti­va­tion­al Inter­view­ing, Cog­ni­tive Behav­ioral Ther­a­py (CBT), Dialec­ti­cal Behav­ioral Ther­a­py (DBT), and move­ment. I look for­ward to guid­ing you on your jour­ney towards wellness.
