Life can be really hard sometimes, whether you are a college student feeling overwhelmed or a parent watching a child struggle. If you or your child/adolescent is regularly experiencing overwhelming feelings of worry, anxiety, panic, sadness (or all of the above!) and feel stuck in them, I can help. I specialize in therapy that brings an enduring sense of calm and confidence, frees us to focus on what really matters in life, and is grounded in the latest science. I am often described as a supportive, warm, and relatable clinician who gives freedom for authenticity, humor and exploration.
I obtained my Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) at Loyola University Maryland. I completed my predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology and integrated care at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), where I provided care and consultation on the oncology and general floors, the Emergency Department, and for outpatients.
As a father and a child psychologist, I appreciate how difficult it can be to see a child struggle with an emotional, behavioral or developmental issue. It is a privilege to be able to share my knowledge and walk side-by-side with children, teens, young adults, and parents as they work towards change.
