I began my professional career as a lawyer. Studying and practicing in the field of law helped me develop critical thinking skills and an understanding of how to navigate the practical challenges of life. However, working as a lawyer made me realize I wanted to help people on a more personal, emotional, and psychological level so they could be effective before they need a lawyer. So, at the age of 29, I quit my job as a family law attorney and went back to school to get a Ph.D. in Psychology. As a lifetime student, I am dedicated to learning. I want to learn more about you and help you get to where you want to be.
I want to learn what is in your heart, mind, soul, and emotions and help you express those parts of yourself in a meaningful and real way. I understand the stress of working in a high pressure career and difficulty of finding authentic fulfillment and self-expression. When I worked as a lawyer, I questioned why I experienced confusion and anxiety.
So, now I am committed to helping others overcome obstacles related to work stress, relationship problems and career changes. I also work as a clinical psychologist at a Veteran Affairs hospital providing psychotherapy to Veterans. I can use this experience to help you with any trauma, PTSD, anger, depression, anxiety, or drug and alcohol problems.
