About

If you have excess stresses, repeated disappointments, or detachment from others, then let's find ways to resolve your difficulties. I have the privilege of serving many individuals with various psychological, emotional, and behavioral concerns. My focus is talk therapy with adults where we collaboratively explore your thoughts, feelings, and actions. We can utilize different methods to treat anxiety and depression, as well as to address issues with closeness, assertiveness, and grief. Oftentimes, relational experiences in the present rekindle our unresolved past developmental traumas or re-enact our maladaptive responses.
I am Board Certified in Clinical Psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology, which is a rigorous voluntary process that demonstrates advanced competence in my specialty. My graduate studies were completed at the University of Hartford and Columbia University.
Quality changes often come from treating multiple aspects of problems using an integrated approach. For example, psychodynamic therapy to resolve how early life stresses deepen current difficulties, cognitive-behavioral therapy to change how negative thinking and problematic behaviors hurt progress in life, or EMDR to resolve traumatic memories.
