Practice Philosophy: When you come to see me, you can expect to be met with respect and authenticity. My practice approach embraces creativity and humor as vehicles for healing. I combine concepts from Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in session.
Best part of my work or a patient visit: Providing a safe and healing space where opportunities for personal growth are created.
Why I became a provider: Mental health care is important and stigma surrounding mental health care is real. Competent, compassionate care can be life changing and lifesaving. I've worked in the mental health field since 2002 in a wide variety of settings. Over this time, I have had the pleasure of being mentored by talented and creative helpers who helped to ignite my passion for walking alongside folks through the seasons of life.
