I am a licensed clinical psychologist and it is my priority to create a therapeutic environment that is tailored to meet your individual needs and goals. I believe that all therapy begins with the relationship we build together and what you, as a client, and myself, as a psychologist, can create together in order to help you reach your goals.
I value authenticity, connection, humor and warmth in the therapy relationship and believe that these are essential elements of healing. Through our conversations, we will explore, discover and process how your past can influence the present and future and hopefully deepen your understanding of the self and increase awareness of how you are and how you would like to be.
I am eclectically trained and pull from a many approaches, including but not limited to relational, psycho dynamic, and humanistic theories. Although the different approaches used are all clinically valid, ultimately I believe that you are the expert of your own life and have the ability to make the changes you want to see.
Through our work together, I will help guide you to see that you have the answers within yourself and can build the life that you want. Throughout my doctoral training and career, I have had the opportunity to practice trauma informed treatment for a variety of populations including military and combat trauma, adult survivors of childhood abuse, sexual trauma and other relational traumas, substance abuse treatment, anxiety disorders, interpersonal difficulties, depression, bereavement and general life stressors or developmental transitions. I also have experience working with children and adolescents struggling with emotional, behavioral or social difficulties.
