I believe in cre­at­ing a safe, non­judg­men­tal envi­ron­ment to fos­ter ther­a­peu­tic change. I pri­mar­i­ly use inter­per­son­al psy­cho­dy­nam­ic and strengths-based approach­es adapt­ed to the client needs. My ther­a­peu­tic goal is to empow­er each client with­in the ther­a­py room by increas­ing insight, self-advo­ca­cy and imple­ment­ing change that can be eas­i­ly trans­lat­ed into dai­ly life.

Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health insur­ance cov­er­age varies by provider.

Clinical Interests

My areas of clin­i­cal inter­est include ado­les­cent & young adult devel­op­ment, human sex­u­al­i­ty, wom­en’s health & devel­op­ment, rela­tion­al trau­ma, self-esteem devel­op­ment and psy­cho­log­i­cal testing.

Personal Interests

Out­side of work I enjoy spend­ing time with my dog, trav­el­ing, hik­ing, going to con­cerns & sport­ing events, cook­ing, and qual­i­ty time with my fam­i­ly and friends! When I am not prac­tic­ing as a clin­i­cian, I teach as an adjunct pro­fes­sor at a local university.
