Master of Arts, Counseling Psychology
You want to appear confident and like you have it all together, but deep down you are struggling with feelings of self-doubt and worry. You may be fed up with second guessing yourself all the time; feeling stuck in your job, relationships, and life; or alone and isolated managing your anxiety. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is certain: you are ready for some relief. You are ready to feel more empowered in your life. You are ready to feel confident in yourself and your decisions. Most of all, you are ready to overcome anxiety and self-doubt so that you can live the full and joyful life you deserve.
Clients come to me looking for a therapist who understands how anxiety and trauma can derail their lives and relationships because therapy should be a place where you feel seen and validated. Sessions with me help reveal your inner capacity to heal. Together, we help you create the life you want, always going at a pace that is comfortable for you. never pushing to a place you don’t feel ready to go.
As therapists go, I'm warm and conversational. I believe that ultimately you know what is best for you and will collaborate with you to help you achieve your goals. I'm curious, engaged, and enjoy exploring new ways of thinking about what's happening in your life and the values and assumptions you have learned from your family and the culture(s) you are immersed in. I'm open to feedback and think humor has an important role in the therapy process.
I earned my master of arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the Wright Institute and hold bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Washington. Additionally, I hold an MBA from Georgetown University. Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent many years working in the finance industry.
As an experienced anxiety therapist, I believe that you can reconnect with your inner strength and begin to heal. You don’t have to continue feeling overwhelmed by worry and self-doubt, and you don’t have to do it alone.
I have training in many different types of therapy and my style is direct and eclectic. Depending on your needs, I use techniques from a variety of theoretical orientations including CBT, DBT, narrative, and mindfulness. I also incorporate self-compassion practices and feminist theory into my work.
