Clinical Interests:

My areas of specialty include working with children and teens in both their home and school environments with one year of experience co-facilitating youth social skills groups as well. My clinical interests include; depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders; learning to assess and diagnose personality disorders; eating disorders; and grief and trauma.

Clinical Approach:

I embrace a client-centered, CBT approach in which the strengths of the individuals and families I work with are emphasized. I have also recently begun to utilize an approach in which shame, resilience, and vulnerability, based on the work of Brene Brown, is emphasized. I have a strong interest in becoming certified in DBT, facilitating DBT groups with adolescents and adults, and incorporating the use of DBT skills into my current work.


I personally enjoy: working out, dancing, singing and listening to music, spending time with family and friends, reading, writing, watching movies, and bingeing Netflix shows.
