I completed my undergraduate studies with honors at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and received a Doctorate of Psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. During my career, I've provided services in psychotherapy clinics, psychiatric hospitals, as well as, substance abuse recovery programs. Although I do not prescribe medication, I have a strong working knowledge of psychiatric medications and coordinate care with psychiatrists and other treating professionals. In addition to my work with patients, I provide supervision and consultation for other psychotherapists and psychologists in training.My style is best described as warm and engaging, and I often hear clients say, "My previous therapist didn't say much or give me helpful feedback." I consider therapy an active collaboration to help you have a different experience of yourself. I endeavor to create a safe space for you to grow and evolve, whether we work together short- or longer-term.
How I work with patients depends largely on your goals, however, I draw from many different theoretical perspectives to remain up-to-date and creative in helping clients. Broadly speaking, I practice a blend of psychodynamic, interpersonal, and supportive psychotherapy in conjunction with evidence-based treatments like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for individuals, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. My theoretical home is Attachment Theory.
