I arrived in the Pacific Northwest from the Phoenix, Arizona area, where I completed my undergraduate and graduate training. I received my bachelors degree in psychology and creative writing from Arizona State University, and in addition to practicing psychology, I write frequently. I received my masters and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from the Arizona School of Professional Psychology, at Argosy University. I graduated in 2015, completed my residency training in 2017, and became licensed as a psychologist that same year.
I have experience working in outpatient, community mental health, and private practice settings. Additionally, I have experience working on inpatient psychiatric units and mobile crisis teams. I also have experience providing supervision to doctoral-level therapists-in-training.
I view therapy as a relationship, in which all change happens. Working within the relationship, I use psychodynamic, dialectical behavioral, cognitive, emotion focused, and group therapies to create lasting change, in how patients experience both themselves and the world around them.
I work with individuals seeking help dealing with depression, low self-esteem, and guilt; anxiety and phobias; personality disorders; obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive behaviors; relationship problems; life transitions; academic and professional issues, and feelings of "imposter syndrome"; and non-suicidal self-injury.
In my quiet time I enjoy reading and writing; photography and painting; listening to music; and playing with my pup.
