My Approach to Helping

"I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing telehealth services in California. I mostly see clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, work stress, relationship issues, sleep disorders, and adjustmentlife transition issues. I use an evidence-based treatment approach such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. My goal is to provide you with a safe place to talk about your concerns while exploring different perspectives and options in managing your difficulties. With every client, I encourage an open and honest relationship in order to effectively and therapeutically address your concerns. I am a big supporter of empowering clients to take steps towards gaining a sense of control, as well as a sense of happiness, in their own lives.

I have always had a passion for helping others reach their full potential. As such, I completed my Doctorate degree in Clinical and Forensic Psychology here in California. During my career as a psychologist, I have worked in several different settings such as the prison and hospital systems, group homes, and several outpatient treatment settings. My client population has mostly been with adults suffering from mild to severe mental illness, in both an individual and group setting.

I currently live in Northern California with my husband, two kids, and our dog Teddi. As a family, we enjoy traveling, hiking, trying new foods, and being physically active."
