I have a very collaborative and interpersonal style and consider the work of therapy as a journey to walk alongside you. I believe the purpose of therapy is to enhance your internal wisdom so you can operate in a more full and authentic fashion, and to help focus on making satisfying and meaningful choices. I work from an attachment-based lens informed by internal family systems and AEDP, and I also use EMDR to address trauma.
I have been trained in mindfulness based empirically supported interventions as well, an interweave this into treatment to enhance personal coping tools. I specialize in PTSD, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Perinatal or Postpartum Issues, Adjustment to Parenthood, Pregnancy Loss, Grief, Depression, Bipolar Disorder and Infertility Issues.
The healing process of therapy can result in an increase in self-esteem, an improved outlook, a greater sense of control or calmness, decreased pain and better self understanding.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Vanderbilt University, my Masters Degree in General Psychology from Boston University and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University in Oregon. I completed my predoctoral internship at the Loma Linda University Behavioral Medicine Center and my postdoc at the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Management Program in San Francisco. I see individuals 18+.
