I am a board certified clinical psychologist and I work with adolescents and adults of all backgrounds, cultures, genders and sexual orientations. I hold a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology, Master’s degrees in Bioethics and Clinical Psychology, and am a Fellow in Thanatology: Death Education and Counseling. I have worked in the mental health field for 20 years with individuals and couples from over thirty different countries and have practiced and taught undergraduate and graduate courses in three countries.

I specialize in helping individuals who have experienced trauma, grief/loss, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, interpersonal difficulties, parenting issues, professional/moral dilemmas, and who are coping with or caring for individuals living with chronic/terminal illnesses. My approach is integrative, collaborative, and care and strength-based.

My priority is to provide you with a confidential and supportive environment. I believe in the importance of establishing an honest, safe, and genuine therapeutic relationship and using that relationship to foster change and increased self-awareness. My sessions are guided by your goals, concerns, and your readiness to make changes.
