About

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and am currently accepting new patients. I enjoy working with a diverse group of individuals who have various levels of mental health challenges. One of my specialties is helping people attain higher levels of self esteem. My approach to psychotherapy comes from an understanding that every individual is unique and that various life experiences as well as genetic makeup contribute to one's overall mental health. I take into account the particular needs of the person & focus on the current problem while also processing & exploring further in an attempt to identify & resolve the root of the issue.
I conduct psychotherapy using an integrative model where empathy and being nonjudgmental are of utmost importance. I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Additionally, I perform psychological evaluations including cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and personality assessments. In addition to providing diagnostic clarification, these evaluations often help with treatment planning as well as obtaining academic and occupational accommodations. ***Please note, I attempt to return all inquiries within 24 hours***
