Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
People are often a culmination of diverse experiences, some beautiful and amazing, some confusing and fear-inducing. I see therapy as a collaborative space to help people explore their choices and why they make them, as well as to create new solutions to previously difficult situations. I use a holistic approach to help develop deeply authentic and fulfilling lives by lessening those old, critical inner voices (driven by shame and trauma) and integrating a new inner voice of self-compassion and self-acceptance. Our work together will be informed with aspects of existential psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, depth psychology and mindfulness with the goal of being emotionally-flexible, relationally-engaged and fully present in your life. I have an extensive background helping individuals and couples navigate the difficulties of relationships and sexuality, as well as helping individuals and families recover from addictive patterns of behavior with sex, pornography, drugs and alcohol. I earned my masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. I completed my undergraduate degree with Phi Beta Kappa honors at Florida International University, along with a culinary degree while living in Paris.
