Clinical Psychologist in Durham, CT

About My Clients

As a clinical psychologist, I understand that your life can be complex. There are demands and expectations at different life stages that can be impacted by situational and mental health struggles. It's important to be mindful of the interaction between those demands and your stage of life. I recognize and respect that people have individual needs throughout the lifespan and I want to work closely and collaboratively with you to ensure that you reach your goals to a richer, more satisfying life.

My Background and Approach

My experiences are diverse. I have worked for over twenty years with individuals, couples, and groups across the lifespan and socioeconomic spectrum by providing a range of clinical services including assessment, consultation, and psychotherapy. I know how challenging asking for help can be and I strive to work collaboratively with clients, both validating your feelings and experiences while helping you to uncover patterns and obstacles that are holding you back from reaching your goals. I seek to provide treatment in an integrative way, utilizing Solution-Focused, Interpersonal, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Using these modalities we will focus not just on difficulties, but on areas of strength and positive coping mechanisms. As part of my work, I am always happy to collaborate with medical doctors, attorneys, in-home therapeutic teams, and school systems to ensure that all providers working with you or your family are in sync with the goals you are striving to achieve.
