We all have goals, but may sometimes have difficulties reaching them. Barriers in life may present in the form of illness, stress, maladaptive coping, anxiety or depression. My goal as a therapist is to create a space that feels safe to identify hurdles that have prevented you from reaching your goal, allowing you the opportunity to receive support while breaking dynamics that no longer serve you. As a marriage and family therapist, I truly believe that engaging in this self-healing work produces stronger relationships with family, friends and partners. I use cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing to help aid you in identifying possible areas of change.
I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families to help them achieve their version of wellness and connectedness in outpatient settings. I received my masters in marriage and family therapy from University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and am currently pursuing my PhD in marriage and family therapy with a specialization in Medical Family Therapy.
