I am an experienced clinician with a very diverse work history that includes serving people of all ages within various community settings. I utilize a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach to meet clients where they are. I believe that the success of the therapy that I offer is in the client-therapist relationship, which involves an alliance based on trust.
I am an active, empathatic listener who recognizes the value of having someone nonjudgmental to talk to. I have witnessed the powerful impact on the brain of feelings being listened to and understood.
I have recently worked within an integrated primary care setting providing therapy to patients of a health center. This experience provided me with the opportunity to help clients make sense of the connection between their physical and mental health as they adopt a more holistic perspectic of themselves.
