Clinical Psychologist: Consultation & Therapy

As a clinical psychologist, I specialize in the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders. In addition to a psychological evaluation, clinical interview, and possibly additional assessments, I evaluate whether a person has symptoms of a mood disorder such as Major Depression, Dysthymia, or Bipolar Disorder, or of an anxiety disorder such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia. Treatment focuses on symptom relief and on increasing well-being. I utilize positive psychology exercises to identify and maximize one's personal strengths.

After discussing the reason for the initial appointment, a thorough assessment (and possibly testing) provides additional context and reveals nuances that are unique to each person. Therapy follows an individualized treatment plan to address the original concerns (individual/couples) as well as those that might be raised through further discussion.

As a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine, I also supervise psychology and psychiatry residents. I treat individuals and couples in my office, which is located in a downtown high-rise to ensure maximum confidentiality, convenience, and comfort.
