Individual Psychotherapy with Adults
I enjoy working with adults across the lifespan who struggle with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and life transitions. I earned a doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Nova Southeastern University, in South Florida. I completed my internship at Pacific Psychology and Comprehensive Health Clinic (formally Pacific Psychology Clinic) and post-doctoral residency at Kaiser Permanente NW.
Within my specialty area of anxiety disorders, I treat Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety, and Phobias. I utilize evidence-based therapeutic techniques to address these issues, working from a cognitive behavioral (CBT) theoretical framework to help decrease unhelpful behavioral and cognitive patterns, while bolstering more functional behaviors and thoughts. I frequently infuse humanistic and person-centered interventions to meet client needs and facilitate individual growth in a supportive and safe environment.
In addition to clinical work, I teach at Pacific University where I am involved in clinical training and supervision of doctoral students and serve on the Multnomah County Hoarding Taskforce. It is my goal to work with individuals in a collaborative manner while helping them find personal and therapeutic success.
