Providing counseling and Psychological Testing

I take an integrated approach to therapy, balancing evidence-based therapies with individual patient needs. I believe strongly in the importance of the therapeutic alliance for effective counseling, and use a wide range of interventions to help patients with a variety of mental health issues. In addition to my seasoned therapy skills, I have an expansive wealth of experience providing psychological and neuropsychological evaluations to children and adults. I am dedicated to my clients, and believe in the importance of unconditional positive regard toward each person I work with. My ultimate objective is to provide my patients with the utmost respect and to encourage self-empowerment toward a better self.
