My approach as a therapist is to meet my client where they are so that we may work collaboratively to understand and find the best ways to manage the issues they are struggling with. I use a variety of modalities so as to be able to adjust my therapeutic model to the needs of the client, including mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and humanistic therapy. I am a school-based clinician who also sees private practice clients while not in the schools. Primarily, I work with children, adolescents, and young adults managing trauma, anxiety, depression, and other issues. Additionally, as a climate-aware therapist, I have the ability and desire to work with clients managing eco-distress in the forms of eco-grief and eco-anxiety resulting from our ongoing and progressing climate crisis.
In my free time, I enjoy playing softball, reading novels, and being in nature with my friends and when I’m lucky, their pet dogs.
I received my M.A. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University, as well as my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
My supervisor is Laura Silvester, M.A., LMFT #114052
