About

**Accepting new clients in Fall 2021** I enjoy working with adult students and professionals who are experiencing psychological conditions including PTSD, depression, sleep concerns, obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders, and with those who are coping with loss and grief, role, identity, and career concerns, and relational conflicts. As motherhood can be challenging, I have specialty training in providing care for women throughout pregnancy and postpartum recovery and facilitate a psychotherapy group for moms to further increase support during this important time.
I offer psychological assessments for K-12, college/graduate/professional students, and professionals to assess for ADHD, learning conditions, and performance concerns (e.g., high stakes-exams). Evaluations identify areas of strengths and weakness, clarify diagnoses, and provide comprehensive recommendations, as well as school and workplace accommodations.
My approach focuses on cultivating authentic, caring, and open experiences to develop better ability to connect more meaningfully within one's life and relationships. I blend an integrative healing philosophy with humanistic, interpersonal, and behavioral methods to further create a space in therapy for an individual to feel courageous, connected, and whole.
