My educational background includes a graduate degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University (2010), an undergraduate degree in psychology, and extensive post graduate training in psychoanalysis, cognitive behavior therapy, and mindfulness.
My approach to therapy is down to earth, warm, collaborative, and insightful. I focus on clearly explaining psychological complexities in a way that is practical and useful to you. Sessions are often a blend of exploring in-depth issues while using realistic strategies and coping skills. By exploring your beliefs, thinking styles, ways of responding to emotions, and by further exploring the past, I aim to help you increase your self-awareness and expand your capacity to better respond to change. I use a sense of humor when necessary.
