Narrative of Services:
Our practice’s mission involves using the best psychological science and techniques, coupled with ongoing training to provide a personalized approach that makes the individual’s experience unique and valuable. We pride ourselves in providing therapy differently as we combine psychotherapy with collaborative assessment, which involves integrating assessment tools to gain a greater understanding of the root of the issues. Our clinicians are trained in evidenced based treatments (e.g. ERP, CBT, Habit Reversal, etc) to help individuals who struggle with anxiety and OCD (including subcategories of OCD like perfectionism, scrupulosity, self-harm, sexual, gender, etc) symptoms.
I’ve been in practice for 10 years. First acquiring my Master’s in Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology with an emphasis in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and later a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. My post doctoral training was at the Beck Institute where I was trained in Recovery Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) under Dr. Aaron T. Beck’s supervision. I further received training and practice at the CBT Center for Anxiety and OCD where I honed skills in Exposure Response Prevention and collaborate with individuals with anxiety and OCD for the last 3 years.
I have significant experience working with college students and adults from various religious beliefs, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ communities. I use a multicultural and integrative approach to therapy by ensuring to explore an individual’s cultural identity and implementing evidence-based practices.
During the 3 years at different college counseling settings, I had attended trainings to help serve neurodiverse population, LGBTQ+ community, and individuals from culturally and religiously diverse backgrounds. This includes differentiating the necessity of recognizing the need to understand cultural competence vs cultural humility. Similarly, I was able to acquire training on how to better collaborate with the neurodiverse population and the nuances in being able to communicate more effectively.
