Announcement icon During the COVID-19 crisis my sessions are through telehealth. I will return to in-person sessions as soon as it is safe to do so.
I am a licensed psychologist with over twenty years of experience providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents and adults. I incorporate my training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy to assist my clients in reducing symptoms and increasing insight and self-awareness. I have specialties in pre-and post-partum mood disorders/infertility, eating disorders, women's issues, depression and anxiety disorders. I am also Intensively trained in DBT.
I am interested in the Mind-Body connection and use Mindfulness training to assist clients in stress management. I also specialize in working with women as they navigate the waters of pregnancy/parenting and maintaining their identity and sense of self. I love working with college students as they move from dependence to independence.
