I work with clients to explore both the unhelpful and helpful patterns in their lives.

Feeling stuck? Do you find yourself repeating patterns, perhaps feeling frustrated and unsure about how to step out of them? Is this impacting self-confidence and self-esteem? I work with clients to explore both the unhelpful and helpful patterns in their lives. By discovering your emotional responses, or if needed, learning first how to identify your emotions, we can examine what your feelings are telling you about your decisions and experiences in your relationships and daily life. Using what we know about the brain and mindfulness we can find coping skills that best suit you to aid in symptom relief. I view my clients as the experts in their lives wherein my role is to assist you in reaching your personal goals. While you may be struggling with something in your life, I believe it is also important to identify and focus on your strengths. I consider it a privilege to be a part of the healing process of my clients.

I am a licensed psychologist and received my doctoral degree from the University of St. Thomas. My APA accredited pre-doctoral internship was completed at Arizona State University and my post-doctoral training at California Lutheran University. I have worked in university counseling centers, community mental health, with survivors of sexual assault, with veterans, and with adolescents and young adults struggling with substance use disorders. Clinically I am interested in developing an understanding of one’s emotional responses, interpersonal concerns and patterns in relationships, identity development, women’s issues, and working with the LGBTQ+ population. My work is primarily done from an emotion-focused theoretical orientation and I often incorporate mindfulness strategies.
