THERAPY SERVICES:

Counseling for Depression, Anxiety, and Disordered Eating: Do you or a loved one feel depressed and anxious for no apparent reason? Is it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings and get excited about things you used to love doing? Do you feel all alone and as though nobody understands your struggles? Or do you feel awkward in social situations and tend to overthink things and assume the worst? If any or all of these apply to you, you may be struggling with depression and anxiety.

As a Stanford trained clinical psychologist, I offer psychotherapy to adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, and disordered eating habits. I will help you explore your inner world and create awareness by providing compassionate guidance. Through my ability to read between the lines, I can see you and help you better understand yourself. My approach to therapy is both insight-oriented and skill-based. As a researcher and clinician, I am able to apply the most up-to-date evidence-based treatments to help you find a way back to a fulfilling and satisfying life. We will work through subconscious barriers and challenges that may interfere with your joy in life, growth, and path to healing.

Counseling for Coping with Cancer and Other Serious Medical Conditions: I specialize in working with individuals and their family members who suffer from serious medical conditions such as cancer. Let’s work together through the emotional struggles associated with the diagnosis of a physical illness. Emotional difficulties can appear at any stage in the treatment process and sometimes only surface once all treatments are completed. I will help you better cope with anxiety and worries associated with your condition and help you make sense of your disease productively to find your way back to a fulfilling life. I have extensive experience working with oncology patients and their family members. I also offer caregiver support. Furthermore, I help adolescents cope with the physical illness of a parent and I work with loss and grief following the passing of a loved one.

Counseling for Managing Divorce, Separation and Custody Proceedings: I have expert knowledge in divorce, separation and custody proceedings. I offer both psychological and neuropsychological forensic assessments as well as therapy services for adolescents and adults who are impacted by divorce or separation. No matter the reasons, going through a separation or divorce can be overwhelming for everyone involved. It can feel like your and your children’s entire worlds have been turned upside down which makes it difficult to function throughout the day. Many research studies have shown that people who undergo divorce face a variety of physiological and psychological difficulties including grief, anger, frustration, anxiety, disappointment, and more.

Divorce is associated with financial hardship, and an increase in depression as people experience loss of partner, hopes and dreams, and lifestyle. But there are things you can do to get through this difficult adjustment and I am here to help. Sharing feelings with a counselor or therapist can help you get through this period. Isolation can raise your stress levels, reduce your concentration, and get in the way of your work, relationships and overall health. Contact me for an initial consultation session and let me help you get back on your feet. I am also here to support your children through this period of adjustment.

Dignity Therapy: Dignity therapy is a short therapy program which involves the creation of a memoir based on your life’s legacy. We will put into words the meaning and purposes of your life. Your story will be made into a bound book which can be shared with loved ones. Dignity Therapy is designed for patients who are facing a life-threatening illness, seniors who would like to reflect over their lives and help them with challenges that may accompany the process of aging, and anybody else who enjoys giving thought to their life’s legacy, discuss values and lessons learned, and those who would like to leave a message for loved ones in a narrative document.

PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT SERVICES:

I provide a variety of assessment services, including psychological and mental health evaluations for custody, divorce, and separation proceedings, adoption evaluations, and neurocognitive assessments.

With 19 publications, I am an expert in psychometric methodology and theory. I conduct high-quality psychological evaluations for adults and adolescents to help inform treatment or for legal purposes, such as custody proceedings. I also provide expert court testimonies as needed.

I pride myself in my ability to conduct thorough and astute psychological assessments, where I systematically examine the information gathered from an assessment and weave it into a comprehensive and complete picture of the individual’s competencies, struggles, and capabilities. Recommendations are based on all the assessment results and on interviews conducted with the individual being evaluated, peers, family, attorneys and others who may be able to shed light on the individual as a complex, unique being. This person-centered, thorough and caring approach to testing, coupled with my expertise in psychometric and measurement, helps me understand the individual in an objective and accurate manner with focus on individual strengths. The results of the tests will help inform and develop a treatment plan to facilitate success in your life.

How I Work: Have you ever had the experience of talking with a helping professional but feeling like nothing is really happening? Have you found yourself in the same painful and infuriating loops over and over again in your relationships and work, patterns that threaten to erode self-confidence and the feeling that life can improve?

What advances in neuroscience demonstrate empirically is that we need immediate and visceral experiences of connection in the here-and-now to alter our brains and nervous system. This understanding is at the cornerstone of my stylistic approach. Working with me, you will find a therapist with over ten years of experience dedicated to listening deeply & non-judgmentally as well as challenging unconscious patterns that limit your growth and access to new experiences. You will leave sessions feeling more emotionally validated, psychologically organized, and ready to take actionable steps to move your life forward.

Specialty Treatment Areas:  Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with a highly diverse group of people across a number of stages of life. These challenges have included:

  • Perfectionism
  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction
  • Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety/ Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Sex & Love Addiction/Codependency
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Rage Attacks
  • Impulse Control
  • Adolescent Challenges
  • Transitioning Young Adult Challenges
  • Executive Functioning Issues
  • Parenting Conflicts
  • Emotional Regulation Issues
  • Family Discord

Individuals Psychotherapy: One-to-one counseling can serve as an incredibly powerful launching pad for personal growth and life change. With an extensive training background that includes both behavioral interventions and psychodynamic approaches, I will partner with you to determine the individualized approach that will most deeply and comprehensively address the changes you are wanting for your life and well-being.

Family Work: How frequently do we find that the people we are closet to are often the hardest to reach or get us at our worst? Taking a deeply systemic and attachment oriented approach, I work with the family as a whole to understand the underlying blocks to emotional communication as well as to empower each member to express and ask for what they need. For over ten years, I have made a focal point of my practice helping families find ways to say the unsayable and work through issues surrounding trauma, substance abuse, divorce, and secrecy.

Groups: Do you ever find yourself gravitating to the same roles in your relationships with friends and colleagues? Do you long for genuine feedback about how others experience you and to identify ways you can be more effective in relationship? Group psychotherapy is singular in its ability to powerfully address and repair deep, unconscious patterns of relating. Using a here-and-now approach, I work as a group leader to create a culture where thoughts and feelings can be put into words and shared in a constructive way leading to interpersonal growth. It is understandably that many people find group psychotherapy intimidating. I will be happy to meet with you to determine if this could be a helpful next step in your personal evolution. Once within a group, you will be invited to take risks, experiment with new ways of being and communicating, and to anchor these changes in the lived experience of relating in the here-and-now.

Educational Background:

  • MSW, Clinical Social Work, Smith College School for Social Work, 2012
  • BA, Psychology, UNC Asheville, 2008
  • Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP), American Group Psychotherapy Association, 2015-Current
  • Post Master’s Fellowship CU Boulder Psychological Health and Psychiatry,  Areas of Focus:  Group Psychotherapy, Eating Disorders and Crisis Care 2012-2014

My Style: I approach therapy with openness and curiosity, and help create change through insight and compassion. The client-therapist relationship is very important and I give this relationship space to be understood. This can be helpful when we are trying to understand our relationships. I bring 7 years of experience working with individuals, families, and groups from a large array of settings, including residential treatment programs, transitional living, colleges, hospitals, and private practice.

I start all work by building a welcoming and comforting space for the client to enter, one in which trust, openness, and safety are created between client and therapist. The specific treatment plan is tailored to the needs of each individual and draws from psychodynamic, relational, and attachment theories.

Specialty Treatment Areas:  I have experience working with many populations including adolescents, young adults, adults, families, couples, multicultural, transgender, gay, lesbian, and queer populations.  Individual, family/couples, and group therapies are utilized to address a variety of psychological issues: eating disorders, adolescent issues, adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, stress management, family/marital conflict, substance abuse, emotional awareness, and multicultural concerns.

Groups: As a Certified Group Psychotherapist I believe that group therapy is a useful addition to individual therapy and can greatly enhance progress in individual work.  In today’s society it is almost impossible for us to not involve ourselves in groups. Almost all of us are engaged in groups at work, school, with friends, family, and other outside activities such as team sports, social interactions, and organizations. In most, if not all of these, intense feelings can arise such as anger, love, or anxiety, which may create distance or closeness with others.  From these experiences we can learn much about ourselves, not only presently about who we are, but also who we have been and what past experiences are still unresolved within us. In our daily living it is difficult for us to understand these events and the casualties that can come from them.  If they make us uncomfortable, we might decide to ignore or push them away. Group therapy creates a unique, safe space for exploring these interactions with others. With the help of the therapist, individuals can begin to understand themselves better as they explore their feelings, reactions, and behaviors toward others in the group.

In group therapy all participants are encouraged to be in the “here and now.”  I think of the here and now as the ability for a person to be able to observe and express their immediate thoughts and feelings without filtering or suppressing them. Group can be a wonderful place where people can rebuild relationships and grow closer in their understanding of intimacy. It is a space where people can heal from pain, struggles, or past relationships and discover within themselves the ability and strength to become all the best they can be.

Individuals Psychotherapy:  I am interested in identity development, eating disorders, trauma, relational issues, and emotional awareness.  I find that for individual therapy to be successful a space needs to be created which the individual wants to enter and in which they feel safe to participate.  That is the most difficult work of all, building a relationship that feels safe, caring, and open.  Drawing from many different approaches, I put a great deal of energy towards creating such a space for any individual who comes to me for therapy.

Families: I work with many families who are struggling to connect or to understand the “problem” occurring.  I use a relational approach, working individually with the adolescent or child who is “struggling”.  Building a trusting relationship allows me to help them reunite with their family and supports their feeling seen and cared for by their family.  This is important as so many families have difficulty changing the “normal” situation, which has proven to be highly dysfunctional.  My role as therapist to the family is to help everyone be aware of and change these negative and unproductive patterns.  As change occurs the family can unify and, with the new skills learned in family therapy, continue making positive changes after therapy is completed.
