I am a warm and compassionate Clinical Psychologist skilled in providing individual and family therapy to adults, adolescents, and children. My areas of expertise include the use of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness and Acceptance based interventions to treat anxiety disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Phobias, Social Anxiety, Selective Mutism, and Panic Disorder. I also have specialized training in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the use of Motivational Interviewing to help people develop motivation to make meaningful changes. Other specialties include parent training, child behavior management, and school-based intervention.

I focus on developing open, collaborative therapeutic relationships with clients, and place their strengths and goals at the center of my practice. I care deeply about my clients and individualize care to their specific goals and needs. I appreciate the courage and determination it takes to come to therapy and I try to communicate my respect for  clients by listening fully and requesting feedback about therapeutic progress. When working with children and adolescents, I focus on the family/school systems as part of my work because I know that children and adolescents need positive support from the adults around them in order to be successful. Finally, I strive to use evidence-based practices that have been shown to help individuals and families make lasting, satisfying, changes in their lives.

I completed my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Suffolk University in Boston and received my BA from Barnard College of Columbia University. I trained at Harvard’s McLean Hospital Behavioral Health Partial Hospitalization Program, at the Kennedy Krieger Institute Behavior Management Clinic, and at the Boston University Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders. I have also worked on national mental health policy at the University of Maryland Center for School Mental Health and my research has been presented at national meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of Clinical Psychology and Journal of Youth and Adolescence.
