Announcement icon To reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, I am meeting with clients over phone, video, or in-person with masks.
I love working with clients who are motivated to make change in their lives. I understand that it takes courage to enter therapy and share your closest secrets with a stranger. With a BA in Women's Studies and a PhD in clinical psychology, I am trained as a scientist-practitioner and have taught college-level psychology classes for over a decade. I draw on the latest research to guide my interventions. I see therapy as a collaborative process: You bring the expertise about yourself, I provide the training and scientific knowledge to help you clarify and reach your goals. I want to help you become your best version of yourself!
I provide individual therapy to adults from diverse backgrounds. My specialties include helping trauma survivors, women who have experienced pregnancy loss, and people facing financial stress. I use a goal-directed, strengths-based approach. Your time and money are valuable. We measure progress at each session and tailor treatment accordingly.
Studies show that therapy works best when there is a good fit between therapist and client. In my 20+ years in the field, my students and clients have described me as warm, funny, and caring. I value the relationship we build and am invested in seeing your life improve. In the event that we don't "click," I will work with you to find another local provider.

Feel guilty because you have a higher net worth than others? You are not alone. Americans consistently cite money issues as their top life stressor (American Psychological Association 2015). Come explore your personal "money story" in this 6-week structured online group. We meet once a week for 60 minutes. Fee: $250 for the 6-session course. Please email for current schedule.
