My Areas of Practice
I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I primarily work with adults to manage complications associated with a variety of psychological, interpersonal, and medical concerns. Employing a non-judgmental attitude is important to me. Listening to clients' stories allows me to collaborate with them to identify attainable goals and devise strategies to reach those goals. My theoretical orientation is based upon personal experience and science. Integrating current research with client needs to choose the most appropriate intervention is a passion of mine. Behavioral therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is a commonly used approach.
