I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Utah and completed my doctoral internship at Boston University’s Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology where I was able to work with people from all walks of life, from those who were homeless to those who were professionals with Ivy League degrees. After completing my doctorate, I obtained advanced training in helping children diagnosed with autism spectrum and learning disorders at Harvard University affiliated McLean Hospital.
I have practiced in many settings including group practice, private practice, community health centers, and inpatient hospitals. In addition to clinical practice I was a professor of psychology at Pine Manor College, a liberal arts college for women in Boston, Massachusetts from 2005-2008. I now am a full-time clinician working with adults, children, adolescents and families.
I have experience working with individuals from many backgrounds, including those with a history of trauma/abuse, depression, anxiety, family conflict, immigration/adjustment issues, relationship problems, gambling addiction, autism spectrum disorders and other struggles. I have provided therapy and psychological evaluations/assessment services to children and adults in private practice, community centers, group practice and hospitals.
I believe that a therapeutic relationship based on compassion, genuineness and nonjudgment is vital and therefore, I strive to build trusting relationships with my clients from the outset. We work together to identify specific goals and throughout therapy, I ensure clients feel they are making meaningful progress towards their goals.
