Together we foster the change that reaches your hopes and needs.
Depending on each person's unique needs, my techniques draw from cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. Additional supportive methods such as present-oriented mindfulness can benefit the mind-body connection and correlate with increased physical health and overall wellbeing. Those who resonate with mindfulness reawaken to where neither future uncertainties nor the burdens of the past cloud the present moment. This clarity of the present moment allows us to see without self-criticism or self-judgment, and to build again to the wellbeing, the relationships, the connections that matter most to you.
Over the years I have had the privilege of providing psychotherapy services to a wide variety of clients in community mental health, university counseling, private practice and skilled nursing/physical rehabilitation settings. After completing my Master's in Clinical Psychology I obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. My postdoctoral residency was completed at Carnegie Mellon University's Counseling and Psychological Services with diverse university students. I have worked with adults across the lifespan facing a broad range of challenges. My areas of special interest include (but are not limited to) grief and loss, identity exploration, life transitions and adjustments, anxiety, depression, chronic medical illness and chronic pain.
