About

For full description: www.firstchoicepsychology.com. I’m a licensed clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience as a therapist, professor, and researcher. I specialize in treating obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, social anxiety, trauma, depression, phobias, addictions, sexual and relationship issues, stress management, burnout, etc. I've worked in a psychiatric ER dealing with life-and-death situations as well as private practice settings treating more in-depth difficulties. I’ve helped people whose goals were to find meaning, value and purpose in their lives. I employ an integrative therapy approach.
Although the foundation of my knowledge of psychology comes from my academic training; important life experiences, that obviously cannot be taught in school, have immensely enriched my understanding of the human condition and suffering. These experiences have greatly deepened my ability to develop genuine and meaningful connections with my clients.
Reaching out to find a therapist is a very personal and difficult thing. I provide a safe therapeutic environment so that my clients feel comfortable and accepted without judgment. I use all of my capabilities to “be with” my clients in their places of suffering so that meaningful and helpful discourse and improvement can occur.
