I am an empathic practitioner who is passionate about helping clients to grow as individuals, while improving their emotional and physical well-being. As with most healers, I came to psychotherapy by way of seeking change, so that I have a first hand understanding of what it feels like to need guidance and support. When working with clients, I tend to rely on an integration of methods tailored to meet the needs of the person I am working with. I prefer a holistic framework focusing on the interconnectedness of our minds and body using a combination of psychodynamic, CBT, DBT and mindfulness interventions.
I graduated from The Evergreen State College where I learned the importance of making connections with other people, asking questions, empathic listening, and learning from differences while additionally exploring creative ventures including drawing, printing, photography and music. After graduation I moved to Korea for several years to gain an understanding of what it is like to live immersed in another culture. When I returned to the US I moved to New York City and attended Hunter College to obtain a Master's degree in Social Work, where I learned current clinical practices in psychotherapy and social justice. I am additionally a certified Raja Yoga instructor with 500 hours of training, and have completed partial training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.
Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming and difficult at first. I encourage anyone to contact me for a consultation to determine if it is a good fit for you.
