About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 17 years of experience helping people to overcome anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and relationship difficulties. My goal is to make my clients comfortable sharing feelings and issues in an understanding, non-judgmental, caring therapeutic relationship. I actively listen as well as provide constructive and supportive feedback as we collaborate in problem solving.
