Approach to Therapy
From a space of non-judgment and sensitivity, I provide a supportive environment for us to explore patterns that contribute to challenges of your everyday life. I aim to bring light to different ways of being, so you can experience less pain, more satisfaction, and a better quality of life. We all get stuck at some point in our lives. It is my job to be present in those "stuck" moments so that we may collaborate in discovering the origins of the distress or discontentment while identifying a path to well-being that fits for you.
I appreciate that this is a professional relationship unlike any other that involves collaboration and hard work. I consider each client's individual identity, concerns, and context in creating a safe therapeutic space, so we can together work towards identifying your needs and achieving your goals.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and my Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. During my doctoral training, I completed a pre-doctoral internship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Counseling and Psychological Services and clinical externships at various inpatient and outpatient mental health facilities in the Chicagoland area.
Once I received my doctorate, I continued my training as a post-doctoral fellow at Georgetown University Counseling and Psychiatric Services and worked for two years as a staff psychologist at the University of the District of Columbia Counseling and Student Development Center. Additionally, I have served as an Associate Clinical Professor in Clinical Psychology for the George Washington University Professional Psychology Program, having provided clinical supervision to doctoral level graduate students.
