I specialize in effective therapy for adults who are suffering from anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, and assertiveness issues. I enjoy working with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community and other minority populations. I have seven years of experience in working with college and university students. This has sparked my interest in working on topics such as life transition, career exploration, and examinations of one's identities.
I have advanced training in ACT from my pre-doctoral internship. ACT offers a valuable path toward tuning into your feelings, thoughts, and goals. It offers a unique perspective in ways that often help clients decrease suffering and increase meaning in their lives.
My doctoral and post-doctoral training in psychodynamic theory has facilitated my increased awareness of dynamics emerging within my relationships with clients and my clients' relationships with themselves. My clients have consistently highlighted how useful that information is because it offers a foundation for self-understanding and a platform for self-growth.
My training in DBT throughout my doctoral program has informed much of my clinical work surrounding interpersonal effectiveness, coping with self-destructive tendencies, and radically accepting one's self and one's situation.
I have a great deal of compassion for individuals who struggle to accept themselves and their body. Facilitating body image groups has been an incredibly meaningful part of my career thus far.
I deeply honor the courage it takes to work through one's trauma in a therapeutic setting. I am grateful for my training in trauma-work that allows me to be a source of support and healing as individuals go through this process.
Much of my training in my pre-doctoral and post-doctoral internship experiences related to working effectively with anxiety. Many of my clients report significant progress from the work we do together in this domain.
I completed my dissertation on mindfulness-based treatments for ADHD. I have facilitated ADHD support groups and have a strong fondness for working with individuals in the ADHD community. While I am not currently set up administer formal ADHD testing, I am able to offer initial diagnostic impressions and facilitate referral to a testing facility while continuing to work on behavioral strategies for managing ADHD symptoms.
One of my strengths as a psychologist is forming a supportive, caring relationship with my clients. Many of my clients who struggle with depression have expressed gratitude for how helpful that connection, in addition to a diverse array of therapeutic interventions, have been for them as they're working toward self-growth.
