Mental, physical, and social wellness weren't always core values of mine. I lived a significant portion of my life stuck in anxiety, unhealthy relationships, and chronic health issues. It took a deep desire to live my fullest life in order to change. I have devoted much of my adult life to understanding the connections between mind and body, through years of clinical training and education, meditation, yoga, and self-compassion practice.
 
I have worked in very diverse treatment settings with kids, teens, adults, and families struggling with severe anxiety based disorders. She completed specialized training while at the Department of Veterans Affairs providing cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness based treatments for adults suffering from OCD, social/performance anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and trauma-related disorders.
 
My treatment approach prioritizes interventions that increase resilience, bravery, and the power of choice. While also incorporating behavioral health techniques that help promote long-term mental and physical well-being. The majority of my individual patients struggle with chronic symptoms of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship distress, and an array of related physical ailments. These are my core areas of expertise. I have also worked extensively with anxious teens and their families, providing education and concrete tools that help alleviate distress caused by anxiety and related issues. I specialize in using evidenced-based integrative approaches to treatment including Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) and Exposure-Based Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
