My Approach to Helping
I believe that health includes emotional, social, mental and physical well-being. Prioritizing your health can be difficult, especially when you are facing life's unexpected challenges. I want to help you navigate through these challenges.
My job is to provide a supportive and compassionate space where you can learn skills that will help you manage the thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensations, and behaviors that come with life’s challenges. We will work together using evidence-based strategies that are tailored to your needs. My goal is to empower you to prioritize your health and make space in your life for the things that matter most to you.
More Info About My Practice
I am a committed and compassionate clinical psychologist with advanced training and expertise in clinical health psychology. I am licensed to practice in the state of Maryland and can see patients via tele-therapy in any of the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) participating states. My interests are in helping patients to understand the mind-body connection, helping them to improve their quality of life despite experiencing chronic health conditions, and improving the way that they live despite stress and hardships. I specialize in health psychology, which focuses on promoting overall well-being as well as coping with acute and chronic illnesses. I specialize in treating patients with acute and chronic pain, EDS, headaches, and migraines. I also have extensive experience treating insomnia, weight management, infertility, and managing life stressors. While I have spent the majority of my career working in hospital settings, I now seek to increase community access to health psychology services. In my part-time private practice, I hope to continue helping you live your best values-driven life. I take a very collaborative approach to ensure that you feel that you are being heard and that your goals are being met. My therapeutic style is warm, genuine, and empathetic. I remain present as we work on navigating your physical and emotional obstacles together.
