Great to meet you!

I'm an empathic listener offering you a safe sounding board and nurturing validation and help to accept, process, and reframe or change challenging thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. Asking questions in a way to help you tap into your own inner wisdom, I can help enhance your ability to heal. I can offer creative suggestions for coping tools and gaining healthy perspective. CBT, ACT, DBT, and Positive Psychology are my main approaches. *I accept current CA and DE residents.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My therapy techniques involve flexibility, cooperation and collaboration. I can offer different things depending on your preferences and styles. Mainly, I hope that you feel empowered, more hopeful, and better equipped to manage life's ups and downs after each session. *I am licensed in CA & can accept current CA residents only.

What you can expect from our first session

Clients may expect to gain hope, validation, reality-testing, insight, action plans, and ideas for positive coping skills to decrease symptoms. Specific, measurable, achievable timely (SMART) goals can be collaborative. You may wish to learn and practice ways to relax, increase self-esteem, find balance among family, work, exercise, and self-time. Some coping skills may include: journaling, meditation, yoga, exercise, art, music, gardening, or deep breathing.
