About Me

My approach to treatment is influenced by my belief that each client is unique and has a vast amount of knowledge about themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and the kind of life they would like to lead. I strive to create an environment that is not only therapeutic, but that also fosters a clients willingness and ability to share. I combine my knowledge of research and clinical experience with the client's expertise about themselves to develop strategies and treatment plans that will support you in healing and developing insight. Treatment plans are tailored to your needs whether it be for short term or long term counseling. This is done in collaboration with the client to maximize the best possible outcomes from our work together. I specialize in working with individuals or couples who are struggling with chronic pain or other health related conditions like obesity, high blood pressure, ADHD, anxiety, insomnia, or trauma. I rely on evidence-based techniques such as cognitive behavioral approaches, hypnotically enhanced therapies, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Emotionally Focused Therapy to support patients in efficiently achieving their goals.

Education & Experience

I earned my Doctorate and Masters degree in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from the Professional School of Psychology in Sacramento, California and my Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies and Biology from California State University, Sacramento.
