I am a licensed psychologist who provides individual, couples, and group therapy. My primary theoretical approach is insight oriented psychotherapy for individuals working through relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and adjustment to transition through life's challenges. I believe healthy people seek therapy for a variety reasons throughout life, and psychotherapy can help you find a more genuine and integrated way of living and relating to others. I work collaboratively to recognize patterns and become aware of unconscious habits and choices that impact one's life and functioning.

As a neuropsychologist, I conduct diagnostic evaluations for adolescents and adults. I use a series of tests to uncover underlying cognitive/thought patterns and emotions that may be contributing to difficulties in daily functioning. I am especially passionate about working with young adults who have been struggling for a while but have not yet identified a source of their concerns. My goals are to assist in the diagnosis of any underlying conditions, and to provide coping and management strategies to help set you up for success.

Making the first step towards change can be intimidating and a daunting task. Best that we talk first about getting the right client-therapist fit. For our youth, now more than ever the anxiety, avoidance, irritable moods and anger issues, and grief are showing up in ways that seem impossible to deal with. My approach is to first make the connection, then to help the young person clarify positive and measurable outcomes, and soon after develop the self-confidence to embark on that difficult mission to make things better with parent support. Working with kids 8 to 80 is a pleasure, a challenge, my mission. All things are possible!

Often, we feel like the problems are not going away or that everybody else is living a better life; however, I can assure you that you’re not alone.
