How I Work

My approach to therapy is integrative and focuses on the specific needs of each individual client. In therapy, I seek to provide a warm and non-judgmental space for you to process your concerns. Life is hard, and we often find we find ourselves caught up in challenges in our relationships, in our personal lives, and at work. Whether your life feels overwhelming or underwhelming, I believe that the care, courage, and curiosity that you find in therapy can go a long way in helping you find new possibilities. Regardless of your past and present challenges, I work from the perspective that you have resilience and strengths we can tap into as we work together to explore new possibilities in your life and relationships.

BIO

I received a bachelors in psychology from Stanford University and my doctorate in clinical psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Washington, D.C. As a graduate student, I have completed training in Children's Hospital of Atlanta, where I provided neuropsychological testing services to children who suffer from medical disabilities. For the past four years, I have provided therapy and psychological assessments to children, adolescents, and adults in a college counseling center as well as in private practice settings. 

My own experience as a former collegiate and professional athlete informs my work around performance. A major part of how we perform on the field, at work, or in the classroom revolves around how we are functioning emotionally and within our relationships. I have unique insights into how external factors influence athletic or professional performance.

Individual Therapy

I provide individual therapy for adults experiencing a range of psychological symptoms and life stressors. Some reasons that clients seek therapy with me include: anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationship patterns, trauma-related symptoms, body image and self-esteem concerns, grief, and navigating major life transitions. Therapy can also be highly beneficial for individuals hoping to develop more meaningful relationships, a fulfilling career, and a healthier family life.

College Students

Transitioning to college can be an exciting time. However, for some, learning to balance their new found independence with academics, new social connections, and extracurricular activities can be difficult. Psychological challenges can add an additional layer of stress throughout this transition process. Therapy can be helpful for college students who are struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, specific learning difficulties, LGBTQ concerns, and general adjustment challenges.

Couples Therapy

I use a psychobehavioral approach (similar to PACT) in therapy with couples. This type of therapy is based in attachment theory and neuroscience related to bodily responses to stress. Understanding each individual's unique attachment style and reactions to conflict can allow for development of strategies aimed to shift problematic relational patterns. Couples therapy can be helpful for partners who are faced with various relational wounds, such as difficult communication patterns, feelings of disconnection, infidelity, parenting conflicts, sexual issues, and challenges while navigating major life transitions.
