About My Clients
I work with people 14+ struggling with a range of difficulties including but not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, phase of life issues, relationship concerns, mood instability, individuation and identity formation, and personality disturbances. I'm also interested in supporting members of the LGBTQ+ community, artists and creatives, musicians struggling with music performance anxiety, and young adults forging their path in life.
My Background and Approach
I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and I received my M.A. in clinical psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. I completed an APA-accredited predoctoral psychology internship at California State University San Marcos, Student Health and Counseling Services, as well as a two-year postdoctoral psychoanalytic training fellowship at Rose City Center in Pasadena. I primarily practice with a psychoanalytically-oriented approach. I strive to foster a relational therapeutic environment in which my patients have an outlet to express parts of their mind that they have not yet put to words. Expression of these inner thoughts and feelings can facilitate relief from stress that can otherwise manifest in painful psychological and physiological symptoms. This process can make way for meaningful transformations to occur.
