I believe in establishing a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect and I adopt a collaborative approach with clients. I work with adults and adolescents with issues related to depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, skin picking, trichotillomania, body dysmorphic disorder, ADHD, Asperger's or high cognitive abilities autism, trauma and PTSD, coping with chronic illness, such as chronic pain and fatigue, tinnitus, etc., career issues, work-related anxiety and stress, and couples or marital difficulties. In my work, I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and emotion-focused perspectives.

I have worked in outpatient psychotherapy, university student health, family medicine and primary care, spinal cord injury, and various departments in Veterans Affairs hospitals. I have specific experience working with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue patients and with veterans.

As a psychologist with an academic background in marketing, an MBA in leadership and transformational change, interests in consulting psychology, and work experience in leadership development, I believe I am uniquely positioned to understand the perspective, challenges, and the pressures faced by business professionals and executives.
