I have been a clinical psychologist for 10+ years. I have worked in numerous clinical and community settings such as inpatient mental health units, outpatient clinics, and addiction centers. I have worked 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, medical students, and psychiatric residents.
Through the years I have focused my practice on working with those who experience anxiety and depression, which often go hand-in-hand. Anxiety and depression can cause dysfunction in many areas of one’s life. Thus, much of my work also focuses on helping others successfully navigate difficult life transitions, improving relationships, and making desired personal and professional changes.
Although I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), my approach is integrative. Each one of us is so unique and have come to be who we are for so many different reasons. 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. In working together, 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.
