I leverage 20 years experience as a clinical psychologist to help clients break free from social expectations that don't match their true values, change unhelpful mindsets and behaviors, and embrace their unique identities and goals.
My goal is for clients to leave each session feeling truly seen and heard, knowing more about themselves and their world, and having at least one practical strategy to help them improve their quality of life.
We will work as a team to figure out what you want to achieve. I may be an expert in Mental Health but you are the expert of your life.
I specialize in time limited evidence based psychotherapy. That means I want to work with you to figure out your struggles and use interventions that are scientifically proven to help you get better. I want to teach you to be your own therapist
Review your experiences in life and therapy and identify what is most important to you. We can create a structured approach to recovering from trauma or enhance coping skills and setting healthy boundaries.
Person-Centered, meaning that I want to meet my clients where they need me. I provide empathy, validation, and unconditional positive regard. I support individuals to focus on the solutions in life instead of the problems.
Collaboratively help you to understand the underlying factors contributing to your distress, teach you ways to more effectively work through the symptoms you're experiencing, and increase your sense of engagement and enjoyment in life.
I work from an integrative approach, drawing on evidence-based interventions, clinical instincts, and the therapy relationship. I often use cognitive behavioral therapy as well as incorporate insight-oriented skills and emotional processing.
Work towards your goals!
Medication management with a holistic approach.
