I aim to provide a therapeutic space that encourages curiosity and can be a place for you to learn more about yourself while being compassionate, respectful, and affirming to individuals’ identities, beliefs, and worldviews.
My therapeutic approach emphasizes mentalizing, attachment, and psychodynamic principles. This means that I help you to understand how early relationships and experiences may have impacted your current personality, relationships, and problems in living. I frequently incorporate aspects of other therapy approaches (DBT, ACT, etc.) that utilize skills or behavioral strategies.

What is Depression? How is it different from sadness?
Sadness is a normal part of our emotional experience. Especially in response to a sad event, it is normal for people to feel down, melancholy, or have “the blues.” However, sometimes sadness can persist for extensive periods and seem to be drastically disproportionate to a triggering event. If these low moods continue for more than a couple of weeks, and interfere with your daily life, it may be a clinically significant depressive episode.
