First and foremost, congratulations on taking a step towards accomplishing your life goals. Making the decision to work with a therapist to help manage any life stressor takes courage and commitment. As a licensed clinical psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your inner strengths and lead a life that is worth celebrating. When working with a new client, one of my primary objectives is to foster a welcoming and encouraging environment. I believe the best outcomes stem from an engaging, collaborative working relationship. Therapy is a very personal experience and I strive to offer my clients the opportunity to be an active participant in their therapeutic success.
We all need support at one point or another during our lives. Recognizing this, I strive to offer my clients the best treatment outcomes possible. I consider myself to be a results-oriented psychologist. Therefore, I utilize outcome measures to review improvements throughout the therapeutic process. I also frequently review the latest research in the field to ensure that you are receiving the most up-to-date evidence-based skills and interventions that have positive results.
On a personal note, I feel very fortunate to be a part of the mental health community. While there continue to be a stigmas with seeking mental health services, I am part of many organizations that speak out and educate the public as to the necessity of appropriate mental health care for everyone. I take my role as a psychologist seriously and I LOVE my work. Thank you for visiting my website and for further inquires please contact me.
