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.

With this basis in mind, we will collaborate on how to best move forward, balancing patient preference with clinical indications. Having been trained and certified in a wide array of interventions, protocols and models, we have a multitude of ways to move towards optimal mental and emotional health. We will engage together on crafting a treatment plan and will revisit and "course correct" as needed. I believe that as a provider I am accountable to my patients and their progress in therapy.

I will often share articles and books with patients, encouraging them to participate fully in their recovery and become strong advocates for their own mental health. I am
I maintain multiple licenses to practice psychology across the United States. For this reason, all appointments are conducted via a telehealth platform. I will verify your location and time zone with you prior to booking your first appointment. For many patients, the telehealth platform is familiar, for others it may seem daunting. There are several benefits to telehealth at this time in our culture, the lease of which may be reduced travel costs and safety concerns.
