I'm a licensed clinical psychologist who places greatest value in establishing an empathic, warm, & respectful environment (while modeling firm, healthy boundaries) for clients & their families. Over the last 7 years I've treated adults, children, teens, couples, families, & groups in a private practice setting. My strength-based, collaborative approach drawing on numerous techniques (CBT, DBT, Fam Systems, etc.) helps clients get the most from therapy & allows tailoring our work to your needs. When beneficial and appropriate, I work to foster a "team approach," encouraging good communication w/other members of a client's daily life (i.e. other practitioners/physicians, family, teachers, etc.).

Change-focused, trauma-informed, strength-based, existential, psychodynamic, intersectional, intergenerational family systems, and art/music modalities.
Change – inevitable, inexorable, unavoidable. Change can be scary, disruptive, and messy. Even good, positive, welcome changes mean saying goodbye to the old while preparing for the new and unknown. Change means overcoming challenges, building relationships, developing character, growing professionally and personally, unearthing and integrating parts of oneself previously hidden. We all need compassionate, focused empathy, supportive insight, and unconditional acceptance. Allow me to help you grow through the changes. Let me help you find and express your best self. Let me join you on your journey.

With a person-centered, compassion focused, strength-based platform, I help facilitate growth, co-creating a non-judgmental space.
Evolution can be messy. Healing and growth are non-linear processes which may feel challenging at times. A holistic approach to healing ensures that we are addressing all facets of the human experience, creating a space to discover our truest and most authentic selves, even when it feels like a hurdle. Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel) put it best, “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” I aim to make therapy a safe container where those questions can be explored, either one-on-one in an individual therapy session, or for couples, in a joint session.
