Welcome. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice. I provide individual therapy to adolescents (ages 14 and up) and adults. My aim as a therapist is to create a warm and empathic environment in which to explore the struggles that bring people to therapy. I enjoy collaborating with clients to help them gain a better sense of patterns that influence their life. I work with my clients to help them find ways to change, grow, and lead a fulfilling life. Each treatment is unique and tailored to the client's specific needs.
I have trained and worked in a variety of clinical settings, including a school setting, an inpatient hospital unit and university counseling centers. I have many years of experience providing supportive, professional care to those struggling with a variety of issues, including, but not limited to: anxiety; depression; loss/grief; relationship difficulties; and addiction.
