I grew up in the Boston area and attended Bryn Mawr College as an undergraduate. In recent years I have completed my Psy.D. program at Pacific University in Oregon, internship at Keene State College in New Hampshire, and postdoc at Boston College University Counseling Services in Massachusetts. With this whirlwind of training behind me, I am thrilled to be settling into my Colorado life and career. As an avid hiker and rock climber, I am excited to make the most of the endless outdoor activities that this beautiful, sunny state has to offer.
In therapy, my first intention is to create a safe, affirming, and authentic therapeutic alliance with my clients. We then work collaboratively to identify what types of goals and supports are needed to move toward valued actions and positive gains. I utilize integrative therapeutic strategies that include cognitive-behavioral, affective, experiential, and mindfulness-based techniques, which I tailor to the client’s unique concerns. I also endeavor to understand my clients’ identities, culture, and personal narratives deeply so that my clients feel truly seen and respected in our therapy.
I have expertise in working on symptoms of anxiety, mood, relational concerns, attachment, identity formation, and trauma. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and I have considerable experience with adolescents and young adults. I also particularly welcome clients who would like to address intersectional identity concerns and/or have LGBTQIA+ backgrounds and are seeking a social-justice informed lens for their therapy.
