I am a licensed psychologist providing individual and couples counseling. I create a safe, warm, and collaborative therapeutic environment in which clients are free to explore their experiences, perspectives, and personal identities, and through which they develop insight, find healing, improve personal relationships, and experience personal growth and empowerment. I respect and value the diversity of each client, focus on their unique social and cultural context, and believe that each therapeutic relationship takes a different path depending on these factors. I enjoy working with a range of clients, including adults and students. Currently offering in-person and video-counseling.

My interests include anxiety & depression, relationship challenges, healing from trauma & significant stress, identity development & sexual orientation, mindful living, and cultivating self-compassion. I draw from various theoretical perspectives, including relational, developmental-contextual, and psychodynamic. I also incorporate mindfulness and cognitive techniques into treatment based on individual needs of each client.
