In the course of my clinical training and professional practice, I have come to understand psychotherapy as representing a rare and beautiful marriage between science and art.
As a clinician, my task is to merge the art of empathic healing with the scientific rigor of empirically-supported treatment - by providing my clients with therapy that is efficacious, as well as individualized, person-centered, and culturally informed.
In the context of the therapeutic alliance, my role is that of both companion and consultant on your journey to wellbeing. Our relationship is one based on mutual respect, trust, and collaboration in pursuit of your unique goals. Together, we will work to solve problems and improve your quality of life, by implementing evidence-based treatments in a manner that is consistent with your values and sensitive to your needs, strengths, and preferences.
I am a postdoctoral clinical psychology resident with experience treating a demographically and diagnostically diverse clientele. My orientation is theoretically integrative - assimilating elements of psychodynamic and family systems theories into an overarching cognitive-behavioral framework. In my generalist model of training, I have worked with individuals with a wide range of presenting problems, including depression, anxiety, suicidality, emotional dysregulation, relationship difficulties, trauma, psychosis, behavioral disorders, and personality pathology. I have specialized training in the treatment of children, adolescents, and families; Exposure-Based CBT for Anxiety Disorders; and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). In my free time I enjoy jogging, making art, and spending quality time with my family and friends.
