About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Genuine. I create a safe place for clients to feel comfortable to be themselves by being myself alongside you.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I use CBT techniques and teach DBT skills. CBT involves exploring how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors effect each other to create maladaptive patterns. DBT skills focus on emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and relationship skills.

  • Together, we will:

    Explore the thoughts and behaviors that are causing you to get caught in negative patterns and figure out ways to create more helpful patterns. We will explore your values, beliefs, and what makes you unique so we can help you thrive.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are struggling with anxiety, depression, burnout, confidence or identity issues, and trauma. I specialize in working with clients ages 15-25.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I know what it's like to struggle and feel alone. It's so important to me that my clients feel seen, heard, and supported through good and bad times.

  • More about me and my practice:

    My practice was named Use Your Noodle Therapy after my Miniature Australian Labradoodle, Noodle! She will occasionally make a cameo appearance during virtual sessions.
