Clinical Psychologist

Hey there! I am a licensed clinical psychologist, former teacher, veteran, and published researcher. I have over 25 years of experience working in inpatient and outpatient settings. I have worked in community mental health centers, private and not-for-profit hospitals, training institutions, staff model HMOs, and in private practice settings.

I believe that asking for help is a true sign of maturity. My approach to therapy is to meet the client where they are in life. I consider all aspects of a client’s life to create a unique treatment plan to help make changes toward a more fulfilling, connected, and healthier life.

I treat children (ages five and older), adolescents, and adults. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, insight-oriented treatment, hypnosis, and solution-focused therapy. I work with clients collaboratively to foster healing and eliminate barriers to finding meaning and living life more fully. I conduct family, individual, and group therapies, and specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, low self-esteem, anger issues, trauma, adjustment, grief, and loss.

I’m a big advocate of having a balance in life and I’m passionate about spending time with family and friends, hiking, camping, and playing the ukulele.
