Bio

With adults and adolescents, I find my approach to focus on empathetic, nonjudgmental listening. Therapy, at its best, is a conversation where we can work together to better understand what you need, who you are, and what has happened in your life so you can have empathy for yourself. Self-empathy is powerful tool to connect yourself to your feelings, which can be hidden from our day-to-day experience. In empathy for ourselves, we can break the cycles that bring us unhappiness and make us feel stuck. With children, I use a play therapy model, mixed in with social-emotional teaching, to help facilitate emotional expression and growth.
