ABOUT THERAPY


I am a clinical psychologist devoted to providing meaningful and dignified therapy. I aim to help people find inner strength to deal with life's difficulties, and personal insight to make it fulfilling. People deserve more than the everyday "grind." They deserve a life marked by joy, fulfillment, and growth. That is why I work with individuals who struggle with excess stress, difficult emotions, and relationship challenges. I am proud to do work that recognizes human dignity in moments of difficulty, and I consider it an honor to meet new people to begin resolving theirs.

I treat a variety of psychological issues including chronic stress or anxiety, depression, irritability, life in the aftermath of trauma or loss, conflict with other people, difficulty making a big life change, and professional/academic challenges. I am well trained to work with individuals from varying cultural backgrounds, and my research in anthropology has allowed me to develop an approach that is humble and sensitive. My current research is on caregiving and recovering from illness, and I am especially trained to treat the dynamics of this particular relationship and the personal difficulties it entails.

People who see me for therapy can expect to develop greater peace in stressful situations, insight to change patterns when life feels "stuck," and mindfulness practices to relocate greater joy in everyday life. I am proud to be well trained and up-to-date with current evidence-based therapies. I draw on a variety of psychological techniques ranging from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based therapy to help people grow in the directions that matter most.

I care deeply about my work, and invite you to contact me to further discuss the possibility of us working together.
