Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), Psychodynamic, Solution-focused, Relational
My therapy style is calm, empathic, and compassionate. I also like to use humor when appropriate. The most important thing to me as a therapist is the therapist-client relationship. It's important for the client to feel safe, heard, and comfortable.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter and our two golden retrievers. I love caring for indoor plants and hiking when I have time. I also like to thrift and watch my shows.
My favorite non-profits include my last job: Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance (mental health therapy for children) & Baby Cafe in Bakersfield (Free Breastfeeding Support for Mothers)
I'm intentional about resting when I need to.
