About Me

Congratulations on taking the first step towards positive change in your life. Deciding to seek help takes courage, and can truly be a transformational experience. I'd like to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings. I'm down to earth, supportive, caring, compassionate; with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgement. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help. Together we can take it one step at a time, at a pace you feel comfortable with.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York and then went on to receive a Master's of Science and Doctor of Psychology degrees from Antioch University New England. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California.

I completed my post-doctoral training in child and adolescent psychology at Genesis Behavioral Health in Laconia, New Hampshire, with extensive focus on treating children and adolescents in a variety of settings. Following my post-doctoral training, I entered private practice and expanded my clinical focus to include work with adults with a variety of presenting problems, including anxiety, depression, and trauma, in addition to relational and family issues.

I have an ongoing interest in working with clients on issues related to trauma survival and recovery, phase of life stress and resilient identity transformation, women’s issues, relationship issues and communication, and “positive parenting.”

I look forward to getting started with you!
