I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both California and Vermont with over ten years on experience. My approach to therapy is collaborative and I work primarily with adolescents and adults. I have intensive training and experience working with anxiety, depression, mood issues, relationship problems and people who have experienced traumas.
My Philosophy of care is that the patient is the expert in their own life. I want to give my clients skills to use that will improve the quality of their life, their relationships and give meaning to the life they live. I strive to create a therapy environment where the client is seen, heard, understood, validated, nurtured, cared for and feels safe, as these are the the best conditions needed to heal.
The treatment modalities I offer are evidenced based approaches, with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In addition, I may also incorporate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), motivational and mindfulness orientations depending on the individual clients presenting problems and goals.
I welcome people from all walks of life, cultures, sexual orientation, genders and religious denominations. It is my honor to work with each and every client and be an empathetic, caring source of support and encouragement.
