My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing evidence-based psychotherapy for individuals and couples. I believe that effective treatment requires evidence-based approaches. I specialize in using treatments with strong scientific backing, including CBT, ACT, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy. I trained at Stanford University, VA Palo Alto, and Washington University in St. Louis.
I work well with younger and older adults on anxiety and worry, OCD and related problems, interpersonal problems, and transitions and adjustments across the lifespan. I also specialize in couple's therapy and help couples identify, re-frame, and work with differences and conflict. I find that therapy can often help address immediate concerns you might have. Excellent therapy will create room to examine and change patterns underneath. My goal is to help you gain insight and make changes that will be enduring and meaningful. Clients have told me that my approach is warm, personalized, and effective.
Please contact me if you think I'd be a good fit for you. A phone conversation can help clarify how we might work together in therapy, and it gives you a chance to interview me to decide whether I might be a good fit to work with you.
