Hello! I am grateful and excited to be a part of this group practice. I am happy to put down roots and work in the community in which I spent my formative years. I have recently returned to the Brandon area after a 12 year stay in California. It feels good to be home. I grew up in a multicultural military family and lived in Oklahoma, Germany, and Florida prior to my move to California. In my free time I enjoy photography, hiking, exploring new places, swimming, music, and spending time with my family.
I earned my B.A. in a double concentration of Psychology and Environmental Studies at New College of Florida, the state honors college in Sarasota. After graduating, I headed west to San Francisco and earned my M.A. and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Community Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology in 2005. I completed my pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral residency at WestCoast Children's Clinic in Oakland, CA. I became licensed in the state of California in 2007 and continued working with adults for over 6 years.
Through my professional experiences, I learned a great deal while working with culturally diverse people across the lifespan, from ages 4 to 90. I assist clients with issues related to mood instability, anxiety, depression, impulse-control problems, self-esteem, school problems, work problems, trauma, grief and loss, relationship problems, among many other issues.
Some of my current interests in the field of psychology include: the effects of trauma across generations, emotional resiliency across the lifespan, and the psychological effects of the practice of gratitude. These interests inform my practice, as I value the development of an individual's strengths in overcoming personal obstacles.
My current treatment approach is eclectic. Currently, I gravitate towards person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based approaches in my work. Above all, I emphasize genuine caring and warmth and tailor my approach uniquely to each client. I am challenging in the context of being supportive and accepting. I am open and flexible and will work collaboratively with you to develop short-term and long-term treatment goals that best suit you and/or your family. I fully believe in a person's ability to heal and grow throughout their life and that psychotherapy can help strengthen and support this process.
I am currently accepting new clients. I provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, older adults, families, and couples. I am in the process of becoming an in-network provider for several insurance companies. I am able to see clients on an out-of-network basis, and I can provide statements needed to obtain reimbursement from your insurance plan. In the meantime, I also offer a reduced fee for individuals that would like to pay out of pocket. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information.
