Profile
“I hold a modern view of mental health treatment, one that is nonjudgmental, warm, humorous, and, most importantly, goal-directed.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I began my career as a kindergarten teacher before becoming a school psychologist. Working with children and families in the public school system is what led me to my current work as a licensed psychologist. I have had the pleasure of working with clients, ages 2 and up, throughout my career and have worked in many settings and levels of care. I have specialized training in parent-child interaction therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
What should someone know about working with you?
I hold a modern view of mental health treatment, one that is nonjudgmental, warm, humorous, and, most importantly, goal-directed. I am a firm believer in the healing powers of knowledge and you will often find me sharing bits of neuroscience and evidence-based information in our sessions, all aimed at helping you discover meaningful solutions to your problems.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Although there is a recent positive shift in our society’s view of mental health, there is still much stigma around getting help. Many of my clients are individuals and professionals who prefer to keep their treatment discrete. I love that teletherapy has become an efficient way for individuals to access care that is supportive yet private and in the comfort of their homes. It has also allowed many of my clients to obtain help without the need for childcare.
