This is also not a place where I tell my clients how the live their lives, or give them orders. This is a place of healing, understanding, and forward movement toward the person you want to be with me as a guide.*
As a psychologist, I have expertise in the treatment of mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders. I have a background working with a variety of presenting concerns that center around interpersonal relationships, living according to one’s values, and weathering a life transition successfully. I use an integrative approach that is, overall, person-centered, intersectional (e.g., understand how your race, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, age, etc. impact your current issues) and radically genuine.
I challenge you to be the most direction driven version of yourself through empathetic listening, warmth, and authenticity. I model expressing yourself in a genuine way by laughing with you, and even shedding a tear with you. I will assign you work outside of session to guide you toward your goals and am willing to adjust our plan as needed.
Therapy modalities: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation
As a life-coach, I work with people on motivation, mindfulness, stress management skills, and organization. I typically focus on life transitions, such as career or relationship changes, but I am trained to work with a variety concerns, including emotional wellness, life skills, boundary setting, and overall personal growth. I challenge people to be the best, most successful versions of themselves in their careers, relationships, and overall mental health.
I create a unique, personalized coaching plan with each of my clients that guides the work we do together. I act as an accountability buddy to ensure that things get done. While I provide you with new skills to organize your life and make your goals a reality, I also use your strengths to shape what our sessions and determine our coaching path.
