Patients Seen: Adults

I worked in out­pa­tient and med­ical set­tings, spend­ing the two years pri­or to join­ing IPD work­ing with Vet­er­ans at a VA hos­pi­tal where I spe­cial­ized in Geropsy­chol­o­gy and worked with those liv­ing with comor­bid and chron­ic med­ical con­di­tions. I have exten­sive expe­ri­ence work­ing with adults and old­er adults who present with a wide vari­ety of psy­cho­log­i­cal and med­ical dis­or­ders. Many of my clients have report­ed feel­ing stuck, lack­ing direc­tion and pur­pose, or hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ty under­stand­ing their thoughts, emo­tions and behav­iors. I help clients drop the rope” of resis­tance and lean into dis­com­fort in order to build insight and increase their present moment awareness.

Clinical Interests

I pro­vide indi­vid­ual and group psy­chother­a­py ser­vices and spe­cial­ize in treat­ing anx­i­ety, stress, depres­sion, grief and loss, and insom­nia. I have sig­nif­i­cant expe­ri­ence help­ing indi­vid­u­als adjust to lifestyle changes and learn to live more effec­tive­ly with med­ical con­di­tions, such as chron­ic pain, dia­betes, car­dio­vas­cu­lar con­di­tions, and hyper­ten­sion. I oper­ate from an accep­tance and com­mit­ment frame­work and inte­grates CBT, mind­ful­ness, solu­tion-focused, and evi­dence-based modal­i­ties. With every client, I strive to help them become their own agents of change, by build­ing off their strengths, increas­ing cop­ing skills and help­ing them to live a val­ues-dri­ven life.
