Announcement icon Due to the COVID-19 virus, I will only be practicing teletherapy for the time being. Please email or leave a voicemail for more details.
We may find ourselves entering therapy or seeking a psychological evaluation for a variety of reasons. We may experience significant life stressors or transitions we were not prepared to cope with. At times, we may simply have negative or distorted thoughts that can contribute to depression, anxiety, or other overwhelming emotions. While there are many different modalities that can be effective in therapy, change largely depends on a good therapeutic match between the client and the psychologist. I hope to offer a space where individuals feel comfortable and safe by creating a non-judgmental atmosphere for us to work together.
I predominantly utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach and incorporate techniques from dialectical behavioral therapy, such as mindfulness. I've previously worked with clients who face depression, anxiety, chronic illness, pain management, traumatic brain injury, ADHD, oppositional behaviors, adjustment disorder, and any medical concerns.
I recently graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at the Washington, D.C campus. I completed my predoctoral internship, which focused predominantly on neuropsychiatric disorders, at Christiana Care Health System in Newark, DE. I have experience with neuropsychological testing with adults, and therapy for clients of all ages.
