Announcement icon Are you feeling isolated and stressed? I am here to support you via secure video conferencing. Contact me for a free consultation.
Have you ever had a therapist sit silently the entire session while you recount your earliest childhood memories or what you did that week? This is not what you will get with me. As a clinical psychologist, I use evidence-based, solution-focused approaches to help you learn practical skills for improving emotional and physical well-being. I will work collaboratively with you by asking questions and providing perspective to co-create a plan for establishing new habits to increase your quality of life.
I balance my use of evidence-based methods with empathy and compassion. With nearly 2 decades of research experience in psychology and neuroscience, I consider myself a behavioral scientist. That being said, my approach is not sterile! I value each client’s uniqueness and do not follow a standardized treatment manual.
My philosophy is to cultivate an atmosphere of caring curiosity with the goal of increasing self-awareness, establishing more effective coping strategies, and enhancing self-compassion. This starts with a phone consultation. Please contact me for a free 25-minute session.
