Specializing in Anxiety, Depression, Caregiver roles, Motherhood, Seniors , Complicated Grief, Adjustment to life transitions, health challenges and Medical-career stress management.
Welcome! My 20-year history working in hospital, hospice, and home-based medical teams has helped me develop effective counseling skills for adults struggling with generalized anxiety, depression, caregiver stress, aging, cancer and illness impact, work-life balance, and unexpected life transitions; including COVID-19's impact to overall wellbeing. I additionally work with new mothers that may be experiencing anxiety and depression. Life transitions can create stressors that reduce our ability to care for ourselves and others. If you find this to be true in your life, I would be honored to help.

***I am currently accepting new clients via teletherapy due to the Covid-19 Pandemic***My clinical work is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work primarily with individuals ranging from teenagers to seniors . As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors . Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu. Having the courage to work on yourself to reach your full potential does not have to happen alone. As a psychologist and cancer survivor, I've experienced physical and emotional challenges that led to positive and healthy lifestyle changes. I hope to use these experiences to help others on their journey with emotional issues, chronic medical conditions, grief, life transition issues, or those who want to improve nutrition and lifestyle. I hope to walk this journey with you in order to facilitate growth and healing.

I'm a clinical psychologist practicing with those who suffer from depression, anxiety, obsessions, anger, aloofness, issues of identity and intimacy, difficult life circumstances and many other problems. While I value knowledge about psychopathology, I find a purely diagnosis-based approach to be insufficient. Instead, we can be curious together about those factors which underlie and perpetuate your particular suffering. This process of exploration and discovery can only happen in a safe and confidential relationship. It is always a great privilege when someone chooses to reveal themselves to me on deeply personal levels.
