Narrative of Services:

My professional training and experience are in evidence-based theories: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Incorporating these theories into a flexible, integrative approach allows me to find the right combination of techniques to meet your needs. My hope is that therapy will empower you with a better understanding of yourself, provide you with a new skill set to manage and overcome your anxiety, and enable you to live a life you value.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes

Training Description:

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 7 years of experience providing individual therapy to adults. My practice focuses on the treatment of anxiety disorders using evidence-based theories, curiosity, and humor.

My work also emphasizes self-compassion. Research shows that practicing deliberate self-compassion is an effective tool to manage anxiety. In my professional experience, clients that learn to offer themselves kindness and acceptance are more able to step outside their comfort zones and therefore better equipped to overcome the fear and avoidance that fuel anxiety. In our work together, we will develop tools to integrate self-compassion into your everyday life.
