About me

Welcome to a space of transformation and growth, where your journey towards a more fulfilling life begins. As a seasoned licensed psychologist based in Wisconsin, and a proud member of the esteemed National Register of Health Service Psychologists since 2007, I've dedicated over 15 years to assisting adults (18+) in navigating a multitude of mental, emotional, and interpersonal challenges.

My commitment to your well-being is unwavering. A cornerstone of my approach is my genuine ease of collaboration and a profound understanding of your unique needs and concerns. With utmost respect and compassion, I'm here to walk beside you as you embark on this transformative path.

In our partnership, I'll not only provide unwavering support but also serve as a catalyst for your growth. I approach our work with an optimistic and uplifting perspective, empowering you to triumph over the obstacles that may stand in the way of your ideal life.

My therapeutic method is an integration of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic principles, seamlessly tailored to your individual requirements. I'll explain these concepts in relatable terms and weave them into a treatment plan meticulously designed for you. Rest assured, my strategies are grounded in evidence-based interventions, ensuring that our efforts are guided by solid research.

To enhance the precision of our journey, I utilize a user-friendly electronic testing platform. This innovative tool ensures a thorough assessment of all facets of your concerns and allows us to quantifiably track your progress, offering you a clear sense of achievement.

In recognition of the changing times, I have embraced telehealth since 2020, after obtaining my certification from the Telebehavioral Health Institute in 2016. Many of my clients have discovered the convenience and flexibility that telehealth offers, and I'm pleased to share that they've reported no difference in the quality of counseling whether virtual or in-person.

Taking that initial step towards seeking help is a courageous endeavor, and I applaud your readiness for change. If you're prepared to embark on this transformative journey, I'm here to offer unwavering support and empowerment. Your decision to work with me will not only create positive change but also open the door to a more fulfilling life. I eagerly anticipate the privilege of joining you on this incredible voyage of self-discovery and growth.

Let's begin this journey together!
