As a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, my primary aim is to offer and provide you with the optimal quality of personalized care possible. That means, in part, ensuring a comprehensive and accurate assessment of your aims and strengths, as well as a close examination of the challenges, issues, and goals that bring you to my office. I respect your courage to confront your possible confusion and frustration, your pain and suffering, and your search for actionable solutions and meaningful life. I honor your sharing relevant personal history and strivings, and my commitment is to work together to enhance your quality of life.
I enjoy working with people across the lifespan, including school-aged children, adolescents, younger and older adults. I provide individual, couples, parenting skills, and family therapy. My training and experience allow me to offer clinical and research-informed therapies for the full range of acute problems and a broad array of mental health conditions.
I encourage you to reach out to determine if you feel I would be a good fit for working together. Every person, encounter, and opportunity is a privilege and a possible move forward in your journey.
