My Approach to Helping
I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Psychologist working with individuals who may be having difficulty coping with feelings of anxiety, depression, or interpersonal challenges. My experience working with a cognitive behavioral and mindfulness based orientation promotes self-awareness, more adaptive coping skills and greater insight into working through challenges.
I consider your own pace and comfort my priority. As an experienced psychologist, developing a strong clinical understanding of your challenges is incredibly important in working towards your treatment goals. Developing greater self awareness and cognitive skills, along with behavioral changes, contribute to the success of my clients.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
I encourage all of my clients to maintain open communication with me. It is completely normal and understandable to have questions about therapy and even the therapist. You are sharing very personal details or your life and experiences, of course you are going to have concerns about what to expect or how the process will transform over time.
As the clinician, it is my responsibility to address any and all concerns you may have either by providing necessary information or by simply discussing concerns in greater detail. Asking questions or having concerns are a natural part of any relationship. My job is to support you in feeling comfortable expressing yourself and really hearing what your needs are. The more you educate me about your perspectives the more I can understand your experiences and provide more tailored approaches that will be helpful to you.
