My Ideal Client

***ACCEPTING INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS ***I have had the privilege of holding people's most painful moments and helping them move forward with courage and resiliency. Regardless of what you have experienced, I seek to provide you with a safe space to share your story and to write them together. My ultimate goal is to be an individual who instills hope in people’s healing journey—and to do so one story at a time. ​

My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialty in PTSD and trauma, sleep/insomnia, and spiritual and cultural diversity issues. ​For the past decade, I have also conducted and published psychological research related to culture and mental health. My approach to healing integrates evidence-based psychological principles with spiritual practices.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am currently accepting clients for individual therapy and coaching. Please note that I am not an in-network provider with any health insurance but can provide documentation for you to get reimbursed if you have out of network coverage for individual therapy.

Issues I Treat


  • Insomnia External link

    I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and Imagery Rehearsal Therapy for Nightmares. Both are evidence-based treatments that last 6-8 sessions. If you are a self-learner, I can get you started through my online classes or individual therapy sessions tailored to your sleep goals and needs.

  • PTSD External link

    My two-year residency specifically focused on PTSD and related conditions. Previously, I have worked with children, veterans, and adults with trauma in a variety of contexts. I have published research in the area of PTSD and am trained in evidence-based PTSD treatments. Learn about trauma/PTSD through my online classes or contact me to discuss individual treatment for PTSD.
