My Approach to Helping
I am a soon to be clinical psychologist offering treatment to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, anger issues, behavioral issues, men’s issues, relationship and family dynamic issues, trauma, identity development and exploration, education and career concerns, and substance abuse. I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Midwestern University. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient, inpatient, partial hospitalization, and residential with clients of all ages with a range of presenting issues.
My approach to the therapeutic process could be described with the words: curiosity, mindfulness, and growth. When working together, my goal is to build a therapeutic relationship that fosters trust, validation, and a space to be curious in order to help clients better understand themselves and their relationship with the world around them.
I integrate humanistic principles with acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Psychological distress originates from values not being met in domains of life like relationships, work, education, leisure, and one’s physical and mental health. Together, we will explore your values and identify value-based actions to assist you in reaching your full potential.
