I am a Master’s-level Registered Psychotherapist with over 12 years of experience providing collaborative and person-centered mental health care with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I take a systems-based perspective to engage a more holistic understanding of your concerns and needs. My priority is that you feel heard and understood and that therapy goes in the direction that is important and relevant to you. I use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic modalities in my practice, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, the Gottman Method, and Adventure Therapy.
When possible, I like to conduct sessions outside in local parks or nature trails. Wilderness and adventure therapy is a great way to combine the benefits of nature with other evidence-based therapy modalities. This approach can encourage more in-depth processing of thoughts and emotions as well as engage in activities that promote mindfulness and self-regulation.
