I am a clinical and forensic psychologist who specializes in psychological evaluations and therapy focusing on: Trauma, PTSD, and Autism.

Whether it is a psychological evaluation or a therapy session, I utilize an integrative, evidenced-based approach. This means instead of treating everyone the same, I tailor our time together to specifically address your concerns and needs.

I like to use the metaphor that evaluations and therapy are similar to putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Each individual comes to me with hundreds of pieces. We take those pieces, lay them out, and we spend time sorting, organizing, and putting the puzzle together as completely as possible. The process is a demanding and rewarding experience. My goals for you include: seeing yourself more clearly, gaining insight into who you are, and accepting yourself unconditionally.

I specialize in psychological evaluations. Types of evaluations include: intellectual, criminal, psychoeducational, personality, guardianship, disability, and dispute resolutions. Feel free to contact me and we can determine if I am an individual who is able to assist you.

I also see a limited number of individuals for therapy. My focus is on Trauma, PTSD, and Autism. Some of the work I do with adolescents and adults revolves around: traumatic brain injury, physical and sexual assault, dysfunctional family environments, sex trafficking, serious health problems, war and conflict, losing a loved one, and wanting to better one’s ability to function.
