Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a clinical psychologist who is passionate about helping teens and adults live a values consistent life, confidently tackling shame, negative self-talk, and relationship struggles.
Hi, I’m a licensed clinical psychologist, and I have specialized experience working with culturally diverse adults struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, shame, and relationship difficulties. I especially am passionate about helping individuals struggling with perfectionism/self-criticism, relational trauma, asserting boundaries, and women's specific health issues.
I also help couples who want to develop deeper intimacy, increase emotional safety, and communicate more effectively with one another.
Overall, my passion lies in helping people 1) address shame by cultivating self-compassion, 2) develop healthy relationship boundaries, and 3) live a values-based lifestyle.
In all my work, I prioritize creating a space of radical acceptance and safety for individuals to examine their lives honestly and accurately. I am confident that radically genuine living is a life worth living, and I strive to help patients develop an inner haven through which they can live unapologetically as their true selves.
