I am a licensed clinical psychologist who believes in radical acceptance and takes a nonjudgmental stance with all of my clients. Everybody struggles sometimes and I want to work collaboratively with you to help you become the person you want to be. I also practice energy healing, sound bowl sessions, and Jungian tarot interpretation. I do not currently accept insurance, but have lowered my prices until I am able to bill insurance. Currently (9/12/22) my individual sessions are $50, my family sessions are $100, and I am charging $500 for psychological testing.

I am originally from California and obtained my doctorate in the Boston, MA area. I am attachment based and offer therapy that is based on evidence while still taking a feminist and multicultural perspective. I offer play therapy for children, individual child and adolescent therapy, family therapy, parent training, and therapy for adults. When parents bring their children to me, I make sure to keep them up to date on our goals and tell them what they can do to help their child. Finally, I offer full neuropsychological testing for ages 3-99 and am highly skilled in testing for Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, personality disorders, and differential diagnoses.
