She offers psychotherapy for clients struggling with a variety of concerns, including: depression, anxiety, OCD, selective mutism, school avoidance, gender dysphoria, anger, emotion regulation, ADHD, interpersonal difficulties, and adjustment to major life stressors. She works collaboratively with clients to develop an evidenced-based treatment plan that is tailored to their individual strengths and needs. Her therapeutic approach is integrative and primarily influenced by cognitive-behavioral, emotion-focused and systems theories.

She is passionate about supporting clients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations. She has an interest in providing assessments for clients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds (e.g., English Language Learners, immigrants, refugees, FNMI). She also values neurodiversity and tries to help clients discover how their differences can become their super powers.

To continue her professional development, she regularly participates in workshops, maintains membership in psychological associations and keeps current with scientific literature.
