Working with people one-on-one to understand their concerns and collaborate on change is my passion. While I am a generalist in my work and am interested in working with a wide variety of individuals, I also have some special areas of interest which include: working with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, women’s issues and gender diversity, sexual diversity, fertility, body image, healing from sexual trauma and other forms of power-based personal violence, social justice issues, changing patterns of substance use, and university student success and mental health.
Our connections with others have a profound impact on our well-being; our primary relationships in particular tend to shake us deeply when they are strained. Sometimes the struggles we face in relationships are a very normal part of a healthy partnership, and sometimes there may be larger wounds. Either way, couples counseling can help by offering a trained, third party perspective on your patterns of conflict and/or disengagement, and by assisting you in trying new ways of relating to one another. Some couples even find that doing couples counseling can be a meaningful way to deepen the communication and connection even in the absence of significant conflict. I work with couples of any gender configuration.
I completed my Psy.D. in 2003 from an APA-accredited program. I have supervised pre-doctoral psychology interns and practicum students, and have experience doing so at an APA-accredited training site. I am open to supervising practicum, intern, or post-doc level trainees.
