**NOT ACCEPTING CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** I believe in establishing a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect and in a collaborative approach with clients. I work with adults and adolescents with issues related to anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, perfectionism, skin picking, trichotillomania, high cognitive abilities autism, coping with chronic illness, such as tinnitus, work-related stress and Type A behaviors. In my work, I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and emotion-focused approaches.
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.
