About

I am a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of experience. I provide individual therapy for those age 17 and older. Issues I commonly work with include anxiety, panic, relationship issues, grief and loss, depression, anger, sexual trauma, intimate partner abuse, PTSD, childhood abuse/neglect, and medical trauma/chronic disease. In my practice, I aim to provide professional expertise within a context that is comfortable and non-intimidating. Clients generally appreciate my warm and friendly personality, the clear feedback and direction I provide, and the opportunity to intersperse some laughter throughout the process.
Special populations for which I have relevant professional and/or lived experiences: step-parenting; military veterans/families; those processing theological deconstruction or psychological harm experienced within a religious context. I desire and welcome opportunities to work with clients from ethnic and cultural backgrounds different than my own.
As is the case for many professionals in this field, my childhood was significantly impacted by trauma and mental illness. I was an early "drop-out" from my first couple attempts as a therapy client, so I am familiar with how difficult starting therapy can be! Even if you feel uncertain, please don't hesitate to reach out. No issue is too small.
