My approach combines an empathic and supportive style with active treatment that is informed by scientific findings. I offer a non-judgmental environment where I listen, ask questions, and strive to broaden our understanding of the underlying issues. I am a licensed doctoral-level psychologist and my services are provided via telehealth. My specific areas of specialization are trauma, anxiety, and insomnia.
My practice is evidence-based, meaning that I integrate current research with my clinical expertise. We will consider patterns in how you think, feel, and behave, and how shifting any of these can help you better reach your goals. My goal is to equip you with concrete skills you can use to enact meaningful change in your life.
Prior to starting my own practice, I have worked in a variety of different settings, including VA hospitals, private practice, and with public safety and law enforcement agencies. I have received specialized pre and post-doctoral training at Yale University, Northwestern University, and The University of Chicago.
