Clinical Profile & Philosophy
My work as a counselor often starts with regulation techniques to decrease the intensity of an emotion. This will allow us to take a step back to see a situation in a different light. We will then consider how a thought, feeling, or behavior is serving you in a helpful or hurtful way (or both!), which often leads us to a deeper understanding of present pain. My goal is to help navigate the distress, so you can reconnect with the beauty in yourself. I resonate with a Trauma-Informed Narrative Approach paired with skills work from both Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy frameworks. I also enjoy working with other modalities like parts work, IFS, and play.
In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, drinking coffee, and making art.
