I am a warm, straight-forward therapist dedicated to helping clients learn how to cope with difficult aspects of their life and emotional experiences more effectively.

I am focused on providing effective treatment. I work to connect genuinely with each of my patients because I believe the first component of effective treatment is the formation of a trusting, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. With this relationship as the foundation, we can then collaboratively determine your goals and take measurable steps to achieving the change you want in your life. I specialize in the treatment of adolescents and young adults struggling with depression, sexual and gender identity, suicidality, emotion regulation, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship problems, family issues, academic and occupational stress, and life transitions.

I specialize in Dialectical and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. These approaches seek to provide practical skills to manage the emotions and thoughts that are interfering with our lives.
