I love helping my clients address issues with sleep, anxiety, mood, and past traumatic experiences. For me, helping others as a psychologist is a true passion. When appropriate, I use evidence-based therapy, which has clinical research supporting its effectiveness. I routinely offer couples and grief counseling. I've been told by my clients that I clearly take my job seriously and prepare well for sessions, always eager to bring them the relief that they're seeking in a thoughtful and targeted way. I don't stretch treatment out any longer than needed. As far as my unique characteristics as a therapist, I believe that humor plays an important role in treatment, and that therapists who are willing to be self-disclosing and genuine develop stronger, more meaningful connections with their clients. I see therapy as a very personal process -- far more so than other types of health visits -- and that forming a real relationship is a key component of mental health treatment. I find that one definite benefit of such a relationship is that I'm able to offer my clients truthful, direct feedback, as they always know that any challenging remarks are coming from a caring and compassionate place. Along these lines, I belief that it's a therapist's job to routinely encourage their clients to push beyond their comfort zones and make bold changes.

Treatment Approach

  • Behavioral
  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Existential/Humanistic
Approach Description: I begin by conducting a thorough intake assessment with new clients, where we get to know each other, I'm able to l gather general background information, and I complete a full diagnostic evaluation. I then provide transparent, open feedback on the assessment, identify goals that my clients want to address in treatment, and work collaboratively to develop a specific treatment plan.
