About Verano

I enjoy working with adults, teens, families, and groups. I approach clients from a psychodynamic perspective influenced by existential psychotherapy and family systems. I have a foundational training in DBT and, depending on the client’s needs, will teach concrete skills to strengthen emotion regulation, decrease anxious and depressive symptoms, increase resilience and distress tolerance, improve communication, and strengthen boundaries in relationships.

My style is collaborative and dynamic; I enjoy working together to understand what clients want from therapy, and how best to achieve their goals. I listen to/ observe carefully what is communicated during session, and I ask a lot of questions to encourage exploration and self-reflection. I balance concepts of self- acceptance and change, and aim to instill the belief that real change is possible and within the client's power.

I admire the courage it takes to come to therapy and consider it an honor to work with clients in their most vulnerable areas. I create a warm, collaborative, responsive, and safe environment in which clients can express whatever they want without fear of judgement.
