As a licensed clinical psychologist, my first goal is to help you see yourself as a human being that can benefit from a new perspective rather than a problem to be solved. Therapy is a unique opportunity to use your past challenges to grow and change in positive ways. I have experience in a wide variety of clinical settings, including university counseling centers, a psychiatric inpatient unit, community clinics and a substance abuse treatment facility. Having earned an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, I view individuals as participants in relationships including family of origin, friendship, romantic and otherwise. In my view, we heal as individuals when we heal in relationships, and the therapeutic relationship is an opportunity to be heard, understood and valued, sometimes for the first time. To do this, it is crucial to be knowledgeable about and sensitive to the different experiences of racial/ethnic minority, LGBTQ, older, international and graduate students. Every person brings a unique way of viewing their lives, thus I believe I must create a new therapy for every person. I enjoy working with individuals who struggle with identity concerns, grief, anger management, depression and other mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance use and trauma. I work with relationship difficulties in individual, couples and group therapy. My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic and interpersonal, and I also borrow many techniques from other therapies including cognitive-behavioral, systems and mindfulness-based approaches.
