Biography

I am a compassionate, caring, and perceptive psychologist who values learning about my clients' lives and personal goals. I collaborate with adults in both individual and couples therapy to improve the quality of their relationships, as well as better manage life stress. While therapy can seem like an uncertain journey, with the right professional support it often leads to remarkable growth and self-discovery.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have a lot of experience working with individuals and couples that will help us quickly get to the root of the problem. I provide a balanced approach offering both insight and practical advice about how to reach your personal goals. We will work together to explore issues in a compassionate and supportive way, so you can feel better quickly and make lasting changes.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I work with adults in individual treatment for a variety of issues that range from anxiety, depression, postpartum mood disorders, as well as family and relationship issues. In general, we work to detect and understand patterns that keep you stuck and learn strategies to move forward. My speciality is working with couples who present with a host of communication difficulties that impact their relationship. I use a combination of Gottman principles, Emotionally Focused Therapy, as well as psychodynamic psychotherapy to help couples feel more connected and appreciated in their marriage.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I'm proud of how I collaborate with clients so they can work through difficulties and look ahead with confidence and hope. From the beginning, I clarify expectations about therapy so that my clients know how to utilize therapy and maximize their progress. My clients feel very supported in our work together and they are often in therapy until the issues are resolved.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Nothing gives me more professional satisfaction than helping couples improve their relationship. All marriages require a lot of hard work, especially to overcome obstacles that can often lead to resentment and alienation. I help couples discuss core issues, that are often roadblocks to connection, with greater empathy and ability to compromise. My clients learn how to discuss their expectations and to give their partner the benefit of the doubt. We work on ways to be supportive of each other, even in the face of disagreements and life stress. Ultimately, my couples learn to consistently demonstrate affection, consideration, and intimacy while creating a more satisfying life together.
