My goal is to provide a comfortable space, free of judgment, where we explore your challenges and identify your goals. As we move towards change, I offer insight and guidance based on a decade of experience and training gained at two prestigious research‐oriented psychology programs--UCLA and The University of Georgia.
I use evidence‐based treatments whenever possible: cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure/response prevention, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, and interpersonal therapy, among others. These strategies can help with anxiety, depression, and relationship problems as well as compulsive behaviors or ruminations. In addition, positive psychology tools, such as cultivating gratitude and resilience, help clients find joy in their daily activities and relationships.
Although I work independently, I enjoy close relationships with colleagues, membership in local and national organizations, and continuing education experiences. I serve as a clinical supervisor for Ph.D. candidates in clinical psychology at the University of Southern California.
