I enjoy any opportunity to work with a individual psychotherapy clients (adolescents,adult, older adults and enjoy the challenge of sitting with couples/families. I do take the opportunity to conduct psychological evaluations and wish to expand this in my practice. Many of my clients are challenged by depression, anxiety, relation ship, low self-esteem, mood disorders, eating disorders, grief and life transition struggles. I work with a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic theory, and attachment-based couples treatment and to work with the client collaboratively in the treatment process.

I have extensive clinical experience treating clients with depression, anxiety, trauma and/or grief. My practice has expanded and I work with many clients with ADHD related issues, school refusal. I enjoy the challenge of families/couples with and have the opportunity to work with adolescents experiencing social anxiety in the Teen Girls Group.

My experience includes working in community mental health, private practice and college counseling center. I have also worked with older adults dealing with grief/loss. I have also worked in a college university setting with clients and their families. Currently I am accepting new clients and work evenings. . Sliding scale fees are determined per client.
