Bio

I value having an authentic connection in therapy. I think a good fit in the relationship between client and therapist is an important foundation. My goal is to understand precisely what clients want to work on and help them reach their goals. I am actively involved in the dialogue of the session and like to provide validation, education, and options for responding to problems.

I have worked as a home-based case manager helping people with psychosis, mood disorders and substance use disorders. I have specialized in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy treating clients with emotion dysregulation disorders. I have worked to help clients transition from an inpatient mental health admission to their outpatient treatment. I have experience working with older adults and adults with chronic illness and cognitive disorders. I am available to work with couples, parents and teens ages 16 and up.
