About

My work includes therapy, testing, education, coaching, and consulting. I work with clients who experience anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and more serious mental health issues, as well as clients who are focused on growth, motivation, and personal achievement. I do psychological testing for issues such as ADHD, mood disorders, disability, dementia, and neurological problems, and I provide treatment recommendations for other clinicians, such as psychiatrists, primary care doctors, and neurologists. I also have self-paced online classes for mental health skills, including "Anxiety is an Asshole" and "Boundaries Boot Camp."
As a therapist, I tend to be straightforward and practical, with an emphasis on collaborative care - we develop and implement goals together. As an assessor, I aim to find helpful answers and treatment recommendations in the context of the client's culture, experiences, and goals. No matter what we're working on, my clients and I always work as a team.
Dealing with the mental health care system in the US can be an incredible challenge - especially if you are struggling with mental health issues, social upheaval, issues of oppression and injustice, and financial barriers. It is my goal to make sure my clients feel safe, supported, and empowered as they work towards personal growth and self-improvement.
