I am a licensed, clinical psychologist working with individuals in a primarily telehealth environment. I believe that the initial focus of treatment is to create a strong therapeutic alliance, such that each patient feels a sense of comfort walking into the therapy room and feels safe engaging and communicating in treatment. As a therapist, I am thoughtful and deeply empathic. I focus on understanding the history of each of my patients, as well as the systems in which they function in order to address the challenges that each patient faces.

Together, we will complete a consultation and an intake process to explore your history as well as current events that led you to seek treatment. From there, we will explore a goal or two that you would like to work toward. Throughout the clinical process, we will explore and discuss achievements, milestones, and progress. I like to use a reflective process to ensure you feel as though you are benefiting from sessions. We will engage in some exercises to facilitate discussions and an exploration of growth and development. I genuinely enjoy working with diverse groups of people and age ranges.
I have a specialized practice for children and adolescents focusing on psycho-educational and neuropsychological evaluations.
