Welcome

As a psychologist trained in the “scientist-practitioner model”, I have found that evidence-based treatments are the most effective for helping people deal with a variety of life challenges and concerning symptoms.  I approach treatment planning with the mind of a scientist (kind of nerdy, I know!). At the same time, it’s important that you feel genuinely cared about and valued by the professional you are working with.  So I strive to listen like a good friend – with compassion and empathy.  

Research shows that the quality of the relationship between therapist and patient/client is one of the main predictors of successful outcomes in therapy.  So for you to get the most out of counseling, it’s important that we’re a good fit.  I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation so we can both get a feeling about working together. You can reach out by phone or email to get in touch, any time.

My Approach

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) are two approaches that have the most research backing up their effectiveness in treating a variety of mental health concerns.  I combine these two approaches with insight-oriented and interpersonally focused therapy techniques, and tailor the details to your individual needs and preferences.  Using research-based approaches, I’ll work collaboratively with you to figure out what will help you move towards feeling better and doing better.
