I have been a clinical psychologist for 10+ years. I have worked in numerous clinical settings such as hospital inpatient mental health units, addiction centers, the court system, and various outpatient mental health and counseling centers. The whole of my experiences has afforded me to work with individuals from a wide range of ages, ethnic backgrounds, and mental health conditions. I have taught, supervised, and coordinated the training of psychological doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, and medical residents.
I specialize in anxiety as I have found that it underlies so many different issues and can permeate all aspects of one’s life. Much of my work focuses on helping others successfully navigate difficult life transitions, making desired personal changes, and improving relationships. I also have extensive experience working with Obsessional Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder.
Although I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), my approach is integrative. Each one of us is so unique and has come to be who we are for so many different reasons that I find it essential to work collaboratively with my clients and tailor my approach to meet their specific needs. As a therapist I am warm, genuine, and supportive. I wholeheartedly believe that the most important part of therapy is the relationship between a client and their therapist. Therapy should feel like a safe place where one can let go and speak freely without fear of being judged. Whatever the reason I can help you identify what has been holding you back and assist you in making the changes needed to get you closer to your goals.
