As a former nurse, and in my daily work as a psychologist, I am well aware of the struggle and pain that we all encounter as a part of life. I feel privileged to accompany my patients on their individual journeys of recovery and change. One of the best tools I bring on that journey is my training in knowing how to listen to you and to appreciate the complex interactions of the mind and body, the deep connections between past and present, and the various challenges each of us faces across our life span from infancy to old age.

My work stresses the relationship between a therapist and client as the key to change. I work to establish trust with my clients so we can safely explore their ways of thinking and dealing with feelings that interfere with their relationships and full participation and satisfaction in their life.

My background as an ICU nurse is especially helpful in understanding the interconnections of mind and body, and how these connections relate to physical pain and illness, as well as to depression and recovery from trauma. I also have expertise in understanding the emotional experience of adults with ADHD.
