I am a Licensed Psychologist, but some people think of me as a problem solving pro, empowerment guru, and self-compassion coach! I partner with my patients to find pathways to a better life. One of the most important things to know about me is that I am NOT a smile and nod type of therapist. I get down in the trenches with you. I work with people of all backgrounds (race, gender, sexuality, religion, alternative relationships) and you should expect that I will affirm your identity while helping you to develop a fuller self concept. My job is to help you tap into strengths you already possess (we all have them even if we can’t see them yet) and create new ones! No matter the struggle (depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship or work issues, etc), I am here to help!
