Education

I am an Licensed Psychologist (PY9748) and I obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2014.  My Bachelors Degree in Psychology is from Purdue University and I received it in 2007.  I have been certified as a Florida Forensic Examiner since 2015.

As a Therapist

In approaching treatment in therapy, I am solution focused and client centered, meaning I am always seeking ways to reduce problems while keeping in mind your specific personality.  Cognitive behavioral interventions are combined with Mindfulness based activities to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.  The importance of emotional expression and self-acceptance is emphasized. I provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for you to share your thoughts and stressors.  Humor and support are both often used in therapy.

Most importantly, I am passionate about helping others.  Nothing is more rewarding that seeing your anxiety decrease over time or being a part of you finding joy in life again.  I genuinely enjoy my work and love the process of therapy.

If you have any questions about me or about how I typically approach therapy, please do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.
