In my work as a psychologist, I have found that helping someone discover their internal dialogue, which has usually become incoherent background noise for many people, is the key to unlocking personal peace and success. We often carry beliefs with us that are unhelpful, untrue, and unkind, that also control our feelings, behaviors, and ultimately, our lives. My goal as your therapist is to not replace those thoughts with "happy" thoughts, but realistic ones, as anxiety and depression often blur our vision of the truth. I use a variety of therapy tools to uncover thoughts in order to custom tailor a treatment plan for my clients. My goal as your therapist is to make sure your goals (not mine!) are addressed and resolved.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I help individuals with anxiety and trauma. I provide cognitive processing therapy and prolonged exposure therapy to help those with a history of trauma. Both of these therapies have been used in clinical trials as an effective form of treatment for trauma and PTSD. I also provide treatment and coaching for individuals with chronic medical illnesses and ADHD who are looking for ways to live easier with their condition.
