As a Clinical Psychologist, I provide a safe and warm environment where my clients can explore areas of their lives that cause distress. I help clients to uncover their strengths and enhance their potential to heal. The process of cultivating self-awareness and of exploring one's relationship to one's self and to others has the potential to unleash growth, vitality and creativity. I believe that when a person engages in the profound communication that psychotherapy offers and when they are listened to with compassion and sensitivity, enormous transformation becomes possible. I have witnessed many clients experience positive change.

I am trained in a variety of contemporary psychotherapy techniques and tailor my approach to each client's needs through a collaborative process. I also provide psychotherapy to children and adolescents and work closely with parents. I have a strength-based approach to treatment rather than a focus on pathology.

My multicultural background grants me a sensitivity to cultural expressions and their impact on identity and the therapeutic process. I incorporate breathing techniques and relaxation training with clients interested in better managing stress and calming the mind. I welcome spirituality into treatment for those who benefit from adding this dimension.
