My Therapy Style

In my 15+ years of work as a clinical psychologist, I’ve served the general adult population and veteran and military community. If you choose to work with me, we would create a therapy plan that is specific to your needs. Therapy provides a safe place for you to process life changes and trauma, develop skills to manage stress and anxiety, and work through challenging and painful life issues. Life changes can be stressful and I’m here to help you through them. 

In my practice, I use evidence-based treatments, which are treatments that we know are effective. I have trained in multiple modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, and sleep. I also use Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE) for my clients with PTSD. We also can work more flexibly and openly discuss and process issues you bring to therapy. We will always work in a collaborative, supportive, safe, and non-judgmental environment. You know yourself best. You are the expert and I’m here to help you work through your issues so that you can feel better.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I've always loved talking to people and listening to what motivates them and how they feel. Even as a young child, I was curious about how people think and feel, and I read books about psychology with my parents. I sought formal training to translate this interest into helping people, and I appreciate that opportunity.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy travel, hiking, tennis, and time with family, friends, and pets.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I ensure I exercise and focus on deep breathing.

What book have you read more than once?

I like reading books in lots of realms. The first that comes to mind is Who Moved My Cheese. It conveys some relevant concepts for all of us in a quick and easy way.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Any animal rescue organization that does great work. I love animals.

How do you recharge?

I use mindfulness strategies and deep breathing to recharge. I ensure I take regular breaks throughout the day. I value work-life balance.

Do you have any pets?

We have a dog and two cats. Our dog is 15 years old and our cats are young. They all love each other.
