I am a licensed psychologist with over 11 years experience. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of difficulties. I specialize in traumatic brain injury, concussion, depression, anxiety, women's issues, relationship issues, child and adult ADHD, pain, learning, academic, and work difficulties, self-esteem issues, chronic illness, and adjustment to illness and injury.
I believe in treating clients with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My style is empathic and supportive, yet direct. I will challenge my clients to gain more independence and accept responsibility. My primary orientation is cognitive-behavioral, although I do integrate other theoretical orientations on a case-by-case basis. I focus on areas of strength in order to compensate for areas that are not as strong. I prefer a positive approach to problem-solving. I will be sure to treat each case individually and gladly accept your feedback. I look forward to helping you!
Also, just an FYI as there has been some confusion, I typically respond one or potentially two times a day, Monday through Friday. I will not typically respond Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays unless there are special circumstances. This also includes use of the “Urgent” button- this button is only to be used in an immediate crisis situation, meaning a life or death situation where an immediate resource is needed to stay safe. Use of this button over a holiday or weekend will likely result in no response until the next working day, UNLESS the message fits the criteria of a crisis situation. Further, if and when you schedule a live session, I am only doing live text at this point, no video or audio. Live text sessions are scheduled in 30 minute blocks. You are able to schedule one of these per week, plus write in your room as often as you wish and expect a response within 24-48 hours Monday through Friday. Thank you, I look forward to working with you!
