About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker, credentialed as a health service psychologist by the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. The National Register credential signifies adherence to the highest standards of professional practice. I originally came to the field due to my belief that individuals fare better when a holistic approach is taken to their care. The more I have studied and practiced, the stronger my belief in this has become. We all operate better socially, occupationally, emotionally, and physically when we feel better psychologically, and visa versa. I enjoy working with individuals across the lifespan, addressing various issues from hiccups that upset the proverbial applecart, to chronic conditions, to interpersonal struggles, and everything in between.

It is a privilege to be part of your journey through life’s challenges and successes, and I hope that I can be helpful to you.
