About My Clients
Many of my clients are seeking an evidence-based approach to treatment in order to understand their emotions, overcome unwanted or intrusive thoughts, or process difficult experiences from the past. I aim to work with each person in the context of many complex and interesting histories, with an understanding of culture and self-expression. Clients can also receive testing for giftedness, attention difficulties, or learning difficulties in order to help thrive in school.
My Background and Approach
Some of my areas of specialty are treating panic, anxiety, OCD, depression, and pain. I also specialize in working with individuals to create balance between their digital world and the physical world, known as “digital wellness.” I also have experience working with children, families, and adults who are looking for assessments of academic acheivement, strengths and weaknessness, intellectual ability, and attention and executive functioning. Assessments include: IQ (WISC-5 and WAIS-4), Achievement, and ADHD assessments for children and adults.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in social justice, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, and fidelity and responsibility in psychotherapy. I am currently the community leader for science and ethics for Therapists in Tech and shared some of my passion for science and research.
