I am a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in treating a broad range of emotional and behavioral problems via individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy. My treatment approach is integrative, most heavily influenced by evidence-based, cognitive behavioral and humanistic-existential theories. I address unique cultural experiences and various psychological systems that may be contributing to your presenting concerns. My style is empathic and non-judgmental and I tailor treatment to meet each individual's unique needs by working collaboratively with patients, to optimize their emotional, mental & physical well-being.

My research, clinical interests, and areas of expertise include grief and loss, mood and anxiety disorders, behavioral medicine/ women's health, pregnancy/ postpartum depression, interpersonal relationships, couples/ marital functioning, trauma recovery, veterans, victims of destructive mind control (cults), and multiculturalism.

For treatment to be effective, a strong therapeutic relationship is essential. I am dedicated to ensuring we are a good fit and offer a brief, complimentary phone consultation. If after meeting we determine I am not the best fit for your needs, I will provide other referrals. *Bilingual: English/ Spanish *
