My focus is on improving your mental and physical health using proven psychological therapies. I will tailor treatment to meet your personal goals.

As a clinical psychologist, I provide individual, couples, and health counseling. My clinical specialties include the following:
- grief and loss
- trauma related disorders
- substance dependence, food, gambling and sex addiction
- eating related issues
- health counseling
- insomnia, chronic health conditions, stress management and weight loss

I integrate multiple evidence-based therapies and am guided by current research on effective treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), hypnosis, and mindfulness based therapies. Additionally, I often incorporate biofeedback to help reduce stress and improve mind-body issues. I also specialize in health psychology for insomnia, chronic health conditions, stress management and weight loss. I understand the mind and body connection very well and my treatment reflects this. Overall, my focus is to provide therapy within a compassionate and supportive atmosphere with the goal of promoting healing and releasing your potential.
