Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to visit my bio! My approach to therapy is a lot like my approach to life in that I believe every part of us is interconnected, and it is helpful to look at things from a holistic perspective. I practice psychotherapy by looking at the mind-body connection and its impact on our health and wellness, taking time to consider the biological, psychological, and sociological influences in a person’s life and how this contributes to the bigger picture.
We know that one size does not fit all in therapy, and that is why I like to keep well-versed in many different types of evidence-based modalities of treatments, such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Couples Therapy (Level 1 and Level 2), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I have also attended workshops and/or completed training for other modalities of treatment including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Play Therapy. Given my interest in the mind-body connection, I also have a particular passion for helping people develop healthier daily habits related to sleep, exercise, and appetite!
My practice is trauma and attachment informed. More than anything, it is important to me that people feel seen, heard, and understood when sharing their experience, and I emphasize meeting people where they are at in exploring the changes they would like to make in life. I believe that people do well when they are able to and can accomplish amazing things when psychological barriers are removed from their path.
A little about me: I have had the privilege of working to develop my practice for over a decade, working in a wide variety of clinical settings ranging from addiction facilities, hospitals, community mental health clinics, and emergency shelters. I feel grateful for these experiences and the people I’ve met and worked with as they’ve helped me grow into becoming the Registered Psychologist that I am today. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually spending time with my family – including my service dog in training, Krieg!
If you’re looking for a change in life and feel like I would be a good fit in helping you get there, please feel free to reach out for an initial consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
