About me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who enjoys working with adolescents and adults. In my practice, I believe it is important to work together to develop a plan to reduce your struggles by improving your ability to cope with life’s adversities, learn new ways to deal with emotions, and increase your ability to thrive in school and life in general. My goal is to establish a safe place where you can begin to address your problems and concerns

I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems in adolescents and adults (ages 12 and up). In my work with adolescents, therapy often focuses on dealing with stress related to academic demands, difficulties in peer and romantic relationships, family conflict, low self-esteem, as well as individuals struggling with self-identity. I also work with young adults who feel overwhelmed during the transition to college or entering the work force for the first time.

My practice draws on elements from empirically supported treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I offer an emphatic, non-judgmental approach to treatment, where you will be understood and unconditionally accepted.
