About

As a counseling psychologist with 10 years of experience I use a compassionate, collaborative and authentic approach to help clients meet their goals. I aim to create a safe and supportive environment for clients to fully and candidly express themselves in order to build an effective therapeutic relationship. I work with a range of clients who experience general life stress, stress related to life-events, relationships and communication problems. I also work with individuals who face marginalization based on their identity/group status, such as people of color and LGBT identified individuals.
I use a myriad of therapeutic techniques and have a background in the treatment of trauma, substance abuse, and sleep problems. I have also done extensive work helping people with their goals around diet, nutrition and exercise. I have practiced in college counseling centers, community health clinics, and the VA.
