My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with experience providing short and long-term therapy to adolescents, adults, and couples. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and issues related to gender, sexuality, and identity. I spent six of my first ten years of clinical experience in college counseling centers and particularly enjoy working with undergraduate and graduate students as they navigate this unique and challenging time in their lives.
I believe that a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship is the key to a successful therapy. I approach therapy with a warm, collaborative, and down-to-earth style and strive to create a space where my clients can feel safe to be their true, authentic, and open selves. I use genuine curiosity, compassion, and sense of humor to foster connection.
I co-founded Groundwork Therapy following a longstanding position at Fordham University's Counseling and Psychological Services, where I held roles as Group Therapy Program Coordinator, Outreach Coordinator and Supervising Psychologist. I earned my PsyD in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco after receiving my MS in Psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I earned my BS in Psychology from the University of Florida.
