I am a Licensed Psychologist with a private practice in
Scottsdale, Arizona. I specialize in adult psychotherapy and the treatment of
eating disorders, depression/mood disorders, anxiety disorders, relationship
issues, family-of-origin issues, trauma, abuse and related issues.
I have been active in the fields of psychology and mental health for over 20
years, obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Missouri State
University, and my Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Counseling Psychology from
Arizona State University. I received advanced specialty training in eating
disorders during my APA-accredited internship and post-doctoral fellowship at
the university counseling center at Arizona State University. I also obtained
Level II EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy)
certification from the EMDR Institute.
To ensure that each client is getting the individualized treatment
and attention they deserve, I tailor my approach to meet the
individual's counseling needs. I work with my clients to find a solution
and develop the skills and coping methods needed to heal and improve their
quality of life.
I know that making the decision to seek therapy is often a
frightening one that takes a great deal of courage. But once that decision is
made, I have seen how tremendously rewarding my treatment can be
when my clients reach their goals and overcome the challenges that have
been holding them back.
When individuals come to see me, I treat them with
professionalism and respect. I integrate a variety of treatment
approaches while working collaboratively with my clients to develop skills that
will improve their quality of life. I offer a down-to-earth, straightforward
counseling approach to help my clients feel comfortable and capable, while
also providing deep and intensive treatment as needed to ensure that my clients achieve
Whether you receive anxiety therapy, trauma
counseling or therapy for depression, I will guide you as I work
with you to address the challenges you're facing. My goal is help clients feel
empowered by discovering their true potential in the healing process.
