Psychotherapy with the brain in mind, to change your life for good. I'm a psychologist and a neuropsychologist - and I bring that broader and deeper perspective to our work together.
I have a passionate commitment to helping people create fuller, more abundant and mindful lives. I love what I do, and I bring my diverse and well-grounded personal, educational and clinical experiences as a psychologist to my psychotherapy practice. My training, credentials, and expertise, together with authenticity, directness, and empathy, help people get the traction they need to create real change. More than twenty-five years as a psychologist, and I still find psychotherapy to be an invigorating and compelling experience with my patients. I really love what I do!
I'm straightforward, compassionate, and authentic in therapy. Together with my training and experience, these support and energize the work my patients and I do together.
I feel strongly that increasing well-being is far more effective than "decreasing" pathology. I focus on helping people create and experience changes in their lives, like:
• emotional growth and evolution
• better relationships with yourself and with others
• healthy and useful self-understanding
• greater resilience
• improved physical health through psychological wellness
• greater life satisfaction
In addition to my extensive background in clinical psychology, I'm a neuropsychologist. I respect and am fascinated by the connections between physical and emotional well-being, and I stay up to date on the research and clinical use of understanding those connections. Before entering private practice, I was an assistant professor at the Emory University School of Medicine, working with patients who had sustained traumatic brain injuries, strokes, and other physical and psychological challenges. From that, I developed a special interest in interpersonal neurobiology, which I bring into the psychotherapy work I do. For example, there's an effective integrative approach between neuropsychology and the practice of mindfulness, with strong, evidence-based research showing real, measurable changes in the brain that support well-being and improved relationships.
