"I bring compassion, acceptance, humor and creativity to my work. My treatment approach is collaborative and client-centered, with “connection” being my guiding principle. I strive to connect with clients, not only by serving as a witness to their challenges, but also by serving as a champion for their strengths and resilience.
I have specialized training in motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
My background as a yoga instructor has also provided me with training in mindfulness practices, which can help clients maintain focus and awareness on the present and increase self-acceptance.
In order to make my services more affordable to a wider population, I accept several major types of insurance."
