About My Practice

People tend to seek therapy when they are struggling to manage difficult emotions, experiencing conflict or distance in relationships, or feeling dissatisfaction in important areas of their lives. I view therapy as an opportunity to explore feelings, understand behaviors, and develop the tools for living a more authentic, satisfying, meaningful life.

The therapeutic relationship is the context within which healing takes place. As a clinical psychologist, I strive to be genuine, warm, and collaborative. I bring humor into my work and actively engage in the therapeutic process. I view the therapeutic relationship as a safe, non-judgmental space within which to grow, learn, and change. I believe that everyone possesses the natural ability to reach their fullest potential, and it is my privilege to help others discover and develop their strengths and resources.

I use a variety of theoretical approaches to therapy based on the needs of each individual, couple, or family. While I have experience with a variety of mental health concerns, some of my specialties include working with:

  • Individuals experiencing difficulty with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief and loss, trauma, and life transitions
  • Adolescents struggling with academic pressures, extracurricular demands, depression and anxiety, peer and relationship issues, and family conflict
  • Young adults dealing with the stress of college, graduate school, and/or life after graduation
  • Parents and adolescents hoping to develop cooperative and supportive relationships
  • Couples looking to improve communication and increase intimacy
