My Background 

I graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. During my doctoral training, I worked as an extern at the Mount Holyoke College Counseling Service and completed a predoctoral internship at the Duke University Counseling and Psychological Service.  I then completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Georgetown University Counseling and Psychiatric Service (CAPS), where I then stayed on for several years as a Staff Psychologist and now serve as the Assistant Director for Clinical Services and Outreach Operations, working with both undergraduate and graduate students.

My Therapeutic Style

I take an eclectic approach to therapy and integrate many treatment modalities, including behavioral, cognitive, dialectic, and relational. In this way, I am able to incorporate many different tools and techniques into a collaborative therapeutic relationship that is tailored to the needs of each individual client. I strive to create a safe and comfortable setting where clients can talk openly about their concerns in a supportive environment. I specialize in addressing depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, identity development, and working with the LGBT community as an affirming therapist. In addition, my experience working in university counseling centers provides me with an in-depth understanding of issues relevant to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those of young professionals.
