Are you suffering from depression or anxiety? Are you struggling to have healthy interactions with your partner, family, or others in your social or work environment? Are you experiencing a major change in your circumstances, such as a divorce, death of a loved one, job loss, or illness? Is past or current emotional or physical abuse impeding your peace of mind in the present? I am here to help. My specialties include mood disorders, relationship issues, life transitions, and trauma.
I provide continuing and integrated mental and behavioral health care for individuals and families; consultation to agencies and communities; training, education and supervision; and research-based practices. It is a specialty in breadth — one that is broadly inclusive of severe disturbances, as well as more moderate forms of mental health dysfunction. My practice is marked by its comprehensiveness and integration of knowledge and skill from a broad array of disciplines within and outside of psychology proper. Its scope includes adolescents as well as older adults and encompasses diverse populations and varied treatment systems. I ascribe to a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach.
I believe the most critical factor in healing is to meet the clients where they are, with whatever theoretical approach seems appropriate given their personal or unique situation. I am a strong adherent of the Rogerian model of unconditional personal regard for my clients at all times. If you are seeking a meaningful and successful therapy experience, I offer an empathetic and caring environment which is the foundation of my work.
My education includes a BA from Yale University, an MBA from Harvard University and a PsyD in Clinical Psychology from Adler University. In my work, I call upon a range of professional treatment systems, trainings and modalities, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Addictions Treatment and Motivational Interviewing. I am licensed to practice in New Mexico, Missouri and Arizona.
