My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been treating adolescents, adults, couples, and families for over 20 years. I am trained in a wide variety of techniques that are designed to produce measurable, meaningful, and powerful results. I also work with families and couples to help improve or repair relationships. My approach is positive, empathic, and solution-focused. I believe the results of therapy should not be a mystery - it should be clear to you that it is working as you reach treatment goals and set new ones.
I treat people with a wide variety of goals and concerns, including sadness, anxiety, regret, confidence issues, loss, and worry. I have specialties in sports performance improvement, public speaking anxiety, panic attacks, fear of flying, expected and unexpected life transitions, and test-taking anxiety. I also treat people who are looking for an existential approach and are looking to find greater meaning in their life.
Unsure if or how therapy might help? I would be happy to provide a one-time assessment to help you understand what might be causing your symptoms and stress, and why it has been difficult to find solutions thus far. This assessment will provide pathways, possibly including but also beyond therapy, to help you or your child reach your goals.
