About My Clients

Although I love the variety of working across the lifespan (with Adults, Children, or Teens), I specialize in working with adults who are ready to consider trying something new in service of achieving their goals and improving their life. I most enjoy opportunities to help people seeking to manage strong emotions, overcome traumatic experiences, improve their relationships, and navigate life transitions.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and the Owner of Advanced Psychology Services. I am also a lifelong learner, and I have spent over 15 years applying that learning mindset to the field of psychology. My goal is to help you actually start living a life you want. I do this by helping you better understand what is happening in your life and how you got there. We explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to identify patterns and how these connect to your experiences. I help you clarify what you want and who you want to be in life. We then sort through your options to identify steps you can take to disrupt these patterns and get on the path to that healthier, happier life. This process is individualized to your needs and goals. Only you can define what you want, and I will use all of my skills to help you get there. Change is hard. But so is staying the same when you are suffering. I look forward to helping you reduce that suffering and start living a life you want.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I know how difficult these journeys can be. I believe in these approaches in part because I have learned from them personally and incorporate them in my daily life. But therapy is not just academic knowledge and techniques. I believe warmth and empathy are crucial to building trust and creating a strong therapy relationship. I strive to be genuine and curious, I often use humor and am known to laugh loudly or make nerdy references, and will challenge you to consider new ways of thinking and behaving. I also acknowledge that we experience the world within larger systemic contexts and believe that it is important to address privilege and inequality in these experiences. As a woman and mother, I am committed to making positive change both now and for future generations.
