It may have taken you a long time to get here, or maybe just a few sleepless nights. The fact you're here today means something is different from yesterday. You may be ready for something different in your life. A good fit with a therapist is key in supporting and helping you figure out what and how to make the change(s) you want. I'm genuine, collaborative, and transparent. Fundamentally, we all struggle with making the most of our lives and relationships, with meaning, purpose, connection, and belonging. Therapy brings our expertise together to help identify and create what will make your life more satisfying and fulfilling.
My approach is strengths-based and culturally informed. We identify not just what's going wrong, but build on what's going right (yes, it exists). I help you capitalize on skills and qualities that have helped you so far and to cultivate new ones to help you move forward.
As a professor, my experience teaching, supervising, researching with and mentoring future psychologists has me continuously learning and reflecting on therapy, life, and being human (yes, I'm a nerd!) My commitment to clinical quality is also reflected in my Board Certification in Counseling Psychology (ABPP).
