I provide evaluation and outpatient therapy services for a range of mental health concerns, with specialized training in the areas of emotional distress, such as depression- and anxiety-related concerns, and psychosis/serious mental illness, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Patients can expect a nonjudgmental, authentic and collaborative therapeutic environment where I provide treatments that are supported by scientific research and align with their personal goals. Common therapies I employ include cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and the Unified Protocol for Emotional Disorders. Across treatment modalities, I incorporate mindfulness techniques and skills. I understand emotional well-being to be a lifelong, often challenging, process and feel privileged to play a meaningful role in the mental health of my patients.
