About me

I am a licensed psychologist with 20 years of experience working with kids, teenagers, adults, and families. I offer a strength-focused approach, prioritizing active listening and validation before solutions. As far as intervention, I am trained in Multisystemic Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Brainspotting. Brainspotting is Trauma based intervention based on neuroscience.
I believe all people can be resilient, and I work to emphasize your strengths to overcome obstacles.
