As a practicing psychotherapist and devotee to lifelong learning and growth, I am committed to helping individuals, couples and groups achieve happier and more productive lives. In a private, comfortable setting, I offer brief and/or in-depth therapy directed at meeting the needs you express.
I appreciate working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, orientations, and beliefs. Some of the client concerns I have worked with include:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Panic Attacks
- Social and Specific Phobia
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
**Certified in EMDR Therapy**
- Grief and loss
- Women's Issues
- Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Concerns
- Relationship and Relational Concerns
- Family of Origin Issues
- Self-Esteem and Personal Growth
- Identity and Multicultural Concerns
After working for 15 years in human resources, I fulfilled my dream of making a career change to psychology. I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University at Buffalo in 2011. My training has included work at the University at Buffalo Counseling Center, Buffalo Psychiatric Center, Kaleida Behavioral Health Trauma and Addictions Program, Orleans County Mental Health Clinic, as well as an American Psychological Association Accredited Predoctoral Internship at Virginia Commonwealth University and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Rochester Counseling Center.
