• What I Treat

    I draw heavily from my extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Couples Therapy, Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy, Trauma-focused therapy, Sex Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, LGBTQIA+ Affirming therapy, and the Unified Protocol for emotional disorders.

    I utilize my psychological acumen, experience, and intuition to employ and integrate these evidence-based modalities in concert to assist patients in creating more fulfilling and meaningful relationships and experiences. 

    I work with adults, adolescents (13+), families, couples, and Veterans.  This array of experience at some of the top programs in the world has enabled me to effectively and competently treat most issues and concerns.
