I am an experienced therapist and assessment provider who collaborates with clients and builds trust and empathy while empowering clients to meet their goals. I work with teens, adults, couples and families. I take a flexible, practical and effective approach to therapy--tailoring services to meet client's specific needs and empowering them to heal and grow.
I have 15+ years of clinical experience. I offer research-proven methods of therapy that can enhance your mood and quality of life. I use brain-based therapies to treat past trauma and chronic pain. One method that I use is Brainspotting, a form of cognitive reprocessing and neuro-hypnosis which I combine with mindfulness training. It helps clients with trauma, OCD, panic, ADHD and even Autism Spectrum to enhance concentration, mood, and self-control. I also provide couples therapy using Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), a groundbreaking approach that helps clients create a foundation of safety, intimacy, and trust. In EFT, couples can have the kind of meaningful, intimate dialogue they need to heal and grow as a couple.
Additionally I offer forensic and general diagnostic psychological assessments. Forensic assessments include risk assessment, mitigation reports (criminal responsibility), and parental fitness evaluations (child custody cases). Educational and general diagnostic assessments include educational and diagnostic testing for ADHD, emotional and learning disabilities (ED/LD), and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
My practice is private pay only. I am not paneled with insurance networks; however I do provide clinical invoices for patients who wish to submit them for out of network insurance reimbursement. I also accepts HSA and FSA payments--for those who have this benefit. All major forms of payment are accepted.
