I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been treating adolescents, adults couples, and families for over 15 years. I am trained in a wide variety of techniques designed to help individuals boost social comfort, school achievement, sports performance, and occupational success. I also work with families and couples to help improve or repair relationships. Specific specialties include overcoming a fear of public speaking, reducing panic attacks, overcoming a fear of flying, navigating expected and unexpected life transitions, and lowering test taking anxiety. My approach is client-centered and solution focused, and results should be measurable, powerful and meaningful.
A sub-specialty is in helping with life transitions, including career change, marriage, relationship changes, or transition to college. I also provide one-time assessments to understand what is causing symptoms, interpersonal stress, and difficulties reaching goals. This assessment will provide pathways toward reaching your/your child's highest potential.
Please note that I no longer accept many private insurance plans, though I am happy to fill out the paperwork you need to potentially be reimbursed.
