About me

I am a Licensed Psychologist with a private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona. I specialize in adult psychotherapy and the treatment of trauma, eating disorders, depression/mood disorders, anxiety disorders, relationship and family-of-origin issues, abuse and related issues.

I am a Licensed Psychologist located in Scottsdale, AZ. I support clients who struggle with eating disorders, overwhelming anxiety, and depression. I also help my clients grow their relationships and identify unhealthy behaviors between themselves and others. I specialize in helping individuals who feel the impact of trauma or traumatic events.

I have additional training in Somatic Experiencing therapy, a therapy style that helps clients become attuned to their bodies’ reactions to stress to overcome trauma. Similarly, I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. My style is direct and compassionate. My goal is to help clients find a state of relaxed safety and grow their coping skills.

I earned my doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Arizona State University. I am passionate about helping men and women to feel empowered to take control of their mental health. I am a certified Daring Way facilitator, which focuses on standing up against shame and growing resiliency.

At the core of what I do, I help you support and soothe your nervous system that can often feel so dysregulated that you feel overwhelmed and stuck in many areas of your life. In therapy, we spend a lot of time tracking and noticing what is happening in the body (including emotions and thoughts) as we talk about and process significant moments in your life.

It may seem a little different than what you are used to at first, but as therapy progresses, you will start to learn a new language to talk about and experience what is happening to you. You will start to feel more at home in their bodies, which for some people is a very scary place.

In essence, you learn how to slow things down on the inside so you have more clarity, understanding and control in your life.

We all have an innate need to feel safe and connected and if we learn how to create conditions for that safety in our bodies and with others, we are able to live more fully present, satisfying lives.

My job is to support you in this process by creating a space for you to learn this new way of connecting to self.

When this happens, true powerful change can occur.
