Profile
“The reciprocal relationship between physical and psychological health was interesting to me, both in the ways that they can negatively impact each other and how improving one can improve the other.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Early on, I observed how our emotional wellbeing can impact our lives in ways similar to our physical wellbeing. I wanted to help others live their lives more fully and meaningfully; I wanted to help them improve, grow, and accept themselves. The reciprocal relationship between physical and psychological health was interesting to me, both in the ways that they can negatively impact each other and how improving one can improve the other. This led me to obtain a doctorate in clinical psychology with a health emphasis and specialization in the areas of pregnancy, postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, infertility, eating disorders, and body image.
What should someone know about working with you?
Everyone is different and everyone experiences life issues differently. My aim is to work with you to create a tailored and integrative approach to best address your unique concerns and goals for treatment. I’m trained in interpersonal, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and psychodynamic approaches. I integrate these approaches to support behavioral change and facilitate a greater understanding of past experiences and patterns that extend into the present. Above all, I aim to create a warm and safe space for clients to be heard and validated, work through challenges, acknowledge patterns, learn about themselves, and grow through the process.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited by the increased openness around mental health concerns and treatment. It is my hope that mental health care will become as commonplace and as destigmatized as physical health care. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about the shift toward telehealth and the increased access and ease of engaging in psychotherapy.
