As a clinical psychologist who is trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. In other words, I believe that it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally, and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance.
In addition, I have received training in sex therapy, as well as sexual identity therapy. I enjoy working with individuals who have sexual identity and gender identity concerns. Additional areas of practice include working with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, AD/HD, issues of adolescence and young adulthood, women's issues, and psychological assessment.
