I am a clinical psychologist offering individual therapy to adults dealing with depression, anxiety, transitions, and a wide variety of other life stressors. My approach to therapy is collaborative, non-judgmental, and action-oriented. I practice evidence-based treatments drawn from a wide variety of cognitive behavioral therapies, particularly Compassion Focused Therapy. The development and cultivation of compassion for yourself and others is core to my practice as a therapist.
To be compassionate is to be sensitive to suffering in oneself and others, and to be motivated to prevent and alleviate that suffering. A compassionate motivation underpins healing, growth, and strengthening of relationships with oneself and others. You can expect me to model compassion and help you learn how to create a more caring and reassuring relationship with yourself. You can expect my compassionate response and support when things get difficult, and my excitement with you as you celebrate the joys of life.
