Therapy Style

As a licensed clinical psychologist, my work centers on using culturally-responsive, evidence-based care grounded in science and assessment to improve mental health, quality of life, and support resilience and wellness among my clients. Each client and I work as a team to build the cognitive and behavioral skills they need to flourish.

I have expertise in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and trauma with adults and I have a specific focus on the mental health needs of women across the lifespan. I practice using the evidence-based therapies in which I am trained and certified including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR), gold-standard evidence-based treatments for trauma (Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, EMDR), and stress management and mindfulness practices.

I have worked with a client population from many areas of cultural diversity including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, immigration experience, socioeconomic status, religion, disability, and first-generation students. In order to best serve the diverse population of clients I treat, I strive to ensure that psychotherapy is provided in a culturally responsive and affirming manner that focuses on the intersectional framework of the cultural identities of each individual patient.

I love reading all kinds of fiction and going to the theater. I also enjoy spending time at the beach or hiking with friends and family.

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

Each day I try to walk outside in the sunshine and practice a moment of gratitude.

How do you recharge?

I curl up on the couch with a cup of tea infused with mint and my dog and read a good book.

Do you have any pets?

I have a small dog named Steve who I rescued from a kill shelter. He is little but fierce and staunchly protects his new home and family.
