About

As a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience treating children, adolescents, adults, and families, I work with individuals exhibiting a wide variety of psychological issues. These include: anxiety-related disorders (e.g., OCD, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias, social anxiety, separation anxiety, panic disorder, etc.), depression, ADHD, behavioral issues, and parenting concerns. With experience practicing in several settings (community mental health, academic medical center, university-affiliated outpatient clinic, and private practice), I have worked with a diverse client base.  
My approach enables a strong, collaborative therapeutic relationship, while utilizing treatment modalities supported by research. I am committed to an integrative approach, as I recognize the importance of tailoring treatments to my clients’ specific needs. I view providing culturally sensitive treatment as essential to providing the most effective care.
Initiating therapy services can feel daunting. My goal is to provide a warm environment where individuals feel accepted and supported. I aim to help people gain insight into their thoughts/feelings and empower them with skills to facilitate long-term growth and cope with life's challenges. I am passionate about helping people live their most fulfilled lives.
