I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in working with older adolescents, young/emerging adults and adults. Clients come to me for issues such as depression and anxiety, difficulties with life transitions or relationships, processing difficult experiences or help making important life decisions. My clients and I have shared goals of relieving immediate symptoms and gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and the origins of their concerns. I hope to provide my clients with an awareness of their inner selves so that they leave treatment feeling prepared to face life’s challenges with self-compassion and equanimity. Research has shown that the most important factor in therapy’s effectiveness is the relationship between client and therapist, so I always use a collaborative approach and emphasize the relationship with my clients. Within this relational framework, I integrate psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based approaches to tailor treatment to you. I believe that a characteristic common to all people is that we have multiple, sometimes conflicting “selves.” I will help you understand and accept all the parts of yourself while making changes in your life that will ease your suffering. I hope that my nonjudgmental stance, curiosity and empathy invite you to explore these parts of yourself with me.
