I am a clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience. After receiving my doctoral education in Clinical Psychology from The University of Denver, I moved to Massachusetts to complete my doctoral program with an internship at Harvard’s affiliate, Massachusetts Mental Health Center. My background includes acting as the Clinical Director for multiple outpatient mental health centers prior to my transition to private practice. In addition to working with adults, I have expertise with couples and children ages four through adolescence.
I currently treat a wide range of issues including: relationship issues, stress management, depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, self esteem, life transitions, parenting problems and divorce. I have cross-trained extensively in various approaches of therapy as I discovered ‘one size does not fit all.’
I use an integrative approach that includes both traditional therapies such as insight-oriented and behavioral therapy, and have been certified in cutting edge techniques like Internal Family Systems (that provides an incredibly helpful perspective and instant tools you can use), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing that is jaw dropping good for trauma and anxiety), and essential mind-body centered therapies such as Somatic Experiencing (which provides tools to help you regulate your nervous system) and mindfulness. I am also certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (which provides skills to help you manage emotions and decrease conflict in relationships). While listening is essential to tune into my clients, my style also tends to be interactive and results oriented. I currently see clients mostly remotely over zoom.
