About My Practice

Personal development, whether practiced independently or in the therapeutic setting, can feel daunting and nebulous leading to dissatisfaction, frustration, and a lack of goal attainment. Furthermore, transformation remains elusive. This is where I can offer you a comprehensive and effective experience.

A significant variable for many clients in reaching their goals is connecting with an effective therapist. My clinical practice utilizes forms of evidence-based therapy which gives individuals knowledge, techniques and skills to overcome challenges. These are applied in daily life giving you strategies you can use to reduce or even eliminate symptoms and increase your vitality.

Utilizing TEAM Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (David Burns, MD) and other impactful methods, together we can create a new path to decrease anxiety and depression, lower self-criticism and perfectionism, increase emotional regulation and improve your interpersonal relationships.

The intersection of meditation/mindfulness and therapy is also part of my clinical specialty. This includes working with health care professionals, including medical school students, in integrating western psychology and mindfulness into health care. I also have a special interest in supporting others to flourish in high pressure professional or academic environments.

The process of therapy is an unfolding into who you truly want to be. You will gain the knowledge, support, and tools to help you reach your goals. Together we will work step by step to understand the unfulfilled wants and needs that have led you to seek support and develop a strategy to design a path forward with clear action items. I will teach you skills and techniques geared toward obtaining your desired changes. Then practicing these skills in your daily life will enable you to achieve measurable and replicable outcomes.  

 I have dedicated my life to understanding the human mind and condition. I value integrity in my clinical practice and create a therapeutic experience that is well versed, giving you options to choose the methods which work best for you. 

Collaboratively, we will enable you to find the equanimity necessary to sustain connection to your self-efficacy in your relationship with yourself and with others, regardless of the external circumstances of life. As a result, you will feel stronger, have clarity, and find balance to live in congruence with what you truly value in life.
