Welcome!  I am a clinical psychologist and have worked in the field of mental health since 1995.  I have had extensive training and experience working primarily with adults in individual and group settings. My psychological services may be helpful to you if you find that you or someone you care about is struggling with:

  • Anxiety (social anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, chronic worrying)
  • Stress management/insomnia
  • Perfectionism
  • Unhealthy relationship patterns/difficulties developing social relationships
  • Weight management/body image satisfaction
  • Depression or mood swings
  • Self-development/self-esteem/self-understanding
  • Habit change such as...
  •      ...unhealthy eating, lack of exercise, overspending
  •      ...hair pulling, nail biting, skin picking
  •      ...procrastination 
  • Cross-cultural issues such as ...
  •       ...ethnic identity, adjusting to the U.S., racism, culture conflict
  • School or career concerns/uncertainty regarding your future

Choosing a therapist is a very important decision but at times can be overwhelming and confusing.  It is important to find a competent therapist who is experienced in effective treatments and with whom you can also feel comfortable working.  With the right treatment and the right therapist, you may be able to experience significant improvements in your life. 


This website contains information on me, my practice, and therapy in general.  Please take a look around so that you will be able to make an informed decision about coming in for counseling.
