My practice utilizes therapeutic assessment to help patients understand their maladaptive coping strategies. I enjoy working with all types of patients, but I do have specialized training/experience in working with patients with anxiety/anxiety type disorders (e.g., OCD) as well as sexually related problems.
My Background and Approach
I am a doctor of psychology and a licensed clinical psychologist. My background is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I received specialized training at the Unified Protocol Insitute in MA and the Beck Institute in PA. I also use motivational intervening to help clients explore their change goals. I have been in the social services field for over 20-years and 10 of those years as a psychological professional.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that all people can change (PCC). Most people struggle with mental health issues is due to the reinforcement of unhealthy learned behaviors. This means that I think you can unlearn those unhealthy coping mechanisms and replace them with healthy ones. I consider myself an LGBTQA+ ally. I make it a point to participate in marches and community actions that support the LGBTQ community.
