About Me


I believe that a trusting and sincere relationship is the foundation for effective therapy. My hope is to foster a space where you feel comfortable bringing in your authentic self without worry of judgement. We will collaboratively improve skills to manage day-to-day challenges, understand brain-behavior connections, and feel empowered to find balance and meaning in life. I want you to feel in charge of your health and wellness. I’m simply here to support and guide you on your journey.

My Approach

I utilize a relaxed and relatable approach to ensure that you feel heard and understood. No two people are the same; therefore, I focus on leading with empathy and tailoring treatment plans to meet each individual’s unique needs. I carefully and thoughtfully choose evidence-based techniques from a variety of treatment modalities. While my approach is guided by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I also use practices from Motivational Interviewing, psychodynamic theory, and behavioral activation to help you achieve your goals in an actionable way. Ultimately, I want to help you gain insight into your cognitions, behaviors, and emotions and how they interact during challenging times.

I have expertise providing care to adolescents and adults (from emerging adulthood to late life) experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship difficulties. In addition, I have specialization in neuropsychology and experience providing cognitive remediation and neuropsychological assessment for cognitive difficulties. Given my neuropsychological background, I also wholly understand psychological distress in the context of medical complexities and can help you navigate the cognitive and emotional changes that occur during illness or periods of high stress.
