I am a licensed psychologist offering virtual psychotherapy. My strengths are in cognitive behavioral therapy and holistic counseling, focusing on women who identify as lesbian as well as those who have survived childhood sexual abuse and other forms of sexual trauma. I believe that healing is possible and I welcome the opportunity to help you find your path to healing.

If you are seeking out therapy, chances are that there is something in your life that is no longer working for you. Whether it’s your relationships, work-life balance, or just the general way that you’ve been feeling about yourself, there’s no need to stay stuck. My role is to help you better understand yourself, your history, and patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may be unconsciously playing out in your life. Because every person is unique, my goal as your therapist is for us to understand you as a whole person and learn what you are really searching for both from therapy and in your life. I consider the relationship between the client and therapist as one of the most important aspects of treatment, and so I work to facilitate an open and non-judgmental environment where we can check in about your experience. I believe that therapy is a crucial balance between doing deep work to gain insight into yourself, while at the same time pushing for real change.

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.
