I invite you to browse this site to learn more about my philosophy and mission.  In addition, you will find important information about my professional services and business policies. 

As a provider of psychotherapy services, I believe in the power of instilling hope and building on your existing resiliency. Through empathic and collaborative guided discovery, I will provide the essential support you need to develop the insight, awareness and skills to facilitate change.

P
sychotherapy varies depending on the personalities of the psychologist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Therefore, there are many different methods I may use in our work together.  As a clinician, I strongly value evidence-based treatment, utilizing techniques and strategies with the goal of validation, symptom alleviation and development of tools to maintain permanent change.  It is important to know that therapy requires a very active effort on your part. In order for psychotherapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions and on your own between sessions. As a provider of psychological assessments, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation that includes feedback and recommendations that are clear, concise and practical.


I believe in a strong therapeutic alliance. Therefore, it is important that you are fully informed of my practice procedures and your rights.  During our initial session, you will be given the documents listed below (or you can download here). You will be asked to read and complete the documents where agreement and signatures are required before your next scheduled session.

I am committed to the continued development of awareness and appreciation for individual differences. I am open and affirming of GLBT persons, and those of other minority backgrounds.  I endeavor to be a positive force as clients explore their own identities and beliefs, making every effort to promote understanding of, and respect for, the full range of cultural and individual diversity. I am dedicated to psychological practice that does not impose any stereotypes of behavior, values or roles related to age, gender, religion, race, disability, nationality or sexual orientation. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                               
I adhere to the highest ethical standards of practice, and therefore do not use email to discuss confidential information. In order to protect your privacy, I encourage communication via telephone and will make every effort to return your calls promptly. I appreciate the opportunity to answer any questions you may have regarding my services and encourage your inquiries.  I look forward to building our relationship and helping you achieve your goals.
