Experience and Services
My approach is guided by the firm belief that people are good and doing their best. So we will explore what you value — what matters to you — and which experiences affirm your values and increase vitality in your life. Perhaps you value a sense of belonging or contribution, or having fun, friends, and your pet. Perhaps feeling more even-keeled or content is important to you. Together we will look at what is most important to you, and then we will determine what gets in the way.
Resources and Influence
The following is an incomplete list of resources that influence how I connect to, understand, and help people. This list is meant to better inform you of who I am and my approach so that you can gain a sense if we might be a good fit. The most important indicator of a successful therapeutic outcome is when therapist and client can trust, empathize, and collaborate. To that end, I encourage you to call and ask any questions you might have about me!

I offer clinical assessments and therapeutic interventions based on each individual client’s needs, goals, and values. I work with adolescents and adults ages 16 and up. While I primarily employ the techniques of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I also draw upon those of Polyvegal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness Practices.
