I am a licensed psychologist. I specialize in working with addiction, mood disorders, personality disorder, anxiety and depression. I enjoy working with adults and couples.

I am trained in health psychology which allows me to treat co-occurring, psychiatric, medical and addiction. I use an integrative model of evidenced based practices to provide quality care.
