Welcome, I’m glad you’re here 😊
Whatever is bringing you to therapy, it is likely relevant to change: searching for a sense of direction, a decrease in symptoms, a different approach, a way to cope. Change can be a tough process, and it’s brave of you to consider it. Looking for a therapist can be quite a task and finding someone who is a good fit for you is important.
My approach to therapy considers how your thoughts, feelings, behavior, community, and identity interact to shape where you are in your circumstances. I work to provide a non-judgmental, validating and strengths-based environment for us to navigate what comes up. I frequently incorporate mindfulness techniques, emotion identification, and skills-based work into sessions with clients. You can talk to me about relationships, life transitions, tough decisions and how to use practical skills to manage mental health symptoms in your day-to-day life.
I primarily work with female, male and non-binary clients ages 15 and up. I work with people with a variety of diagnoses, including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, ADHD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors, Eating Disorders and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. I have special interests in working with clients who identify as college/graduate students, parents, people pleasers, people experiencing burnout, and people sorting out their religious beliefs. I have a certificate in American Sign Language and can use this to supplement therapy in English as needed. También, puedo hablar español y podemos hacer terapia con inglés y español.
I am trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD treatment, treating Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors, DBT therapy, and career counseling. I can provide DBT individual therapy to those who are enrolled in DBT groups at other clinics. I am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator and I would love to provide couples sessions if you are looking to complete this assessment.
Reach out if it sounds like my approach would be a good fit for you. I look forward to getting to know and work with you!
