My Approach to Helping
First and foremost, I strive to establish a comfortable and trusting relationship with my clients, as research shows that the therapeutic relationship itself is a powerful conduit for change.
While I am trained in general Clinical Psychology, I specialized in Pediatric Psychology during my postdoctoral fellowship at Yale Child Study Center. Thus, I assess and treat children, adolescent, and young adults for a myriad of presenting issues e.g. anxiety, depression, oppositional-defiant behavior, ADHD, and traumatic stress.
My primary theoretical orientation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), asserting that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected.
