I am a licensed clinical psychologist and work from an interpersonal frame of reference and use a variety of techniques including cognitive behavioral approaches in my work with adult individuals and with couples. I work with clients in identifying and changing patterns in their lives that no longer work for them in an effort to help them achieve greater happiness, peace, and balance in their professional and personal lives. I believe in people’s ability to change and take charge of their own lives. I work interactively and supportively with clients to bring out their strengths and activate the healthiest part of themselves to accomplish their goals.
The therapy relationship not only provides objective reflection and a sounding board for issues, but itself can be healing as clients become more aware of how they operate in relationships and explore healthier ways of connecting. Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist, trained in EMDR, EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), ACT, DBT.
I make every attempt to understand a client’s unique situation and honor their background without discrimination on the basis of race, religion, age, or gender.
