About the Practice

A few things to know about the practice:

  • Staff take a relational, collaborative approach with clients.  Clients are the experts of their own lives, they have the ability within them to help them reach wellness, and that they deserve to make truly informed decisions about their care.
  • The practice is run by a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who has worked in a variety of settings, such as community mental health, inpatient, prisons, colleges, and military/veteran facilities and worked at the local, state, and federal levels.  These roles allow her to understand mental health through a complex relationship of medical, biological, social, cultural, psychological, and legal systems and to value integrative care, focusing on working with individuals who have been impacted by trauma.   She has been trained in and has experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy.  While not typically an area of focus, she also has been trained in Play Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.  She is also a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider.  Additionally, she has completed an accredited, educational certificate program in Sex Therapy, which is psychological therapy focused on talking through problems with sex and intimacy that individuals or couples are facing.  She is working towards her AASECT certification - AASECT is the national accrediting body for sex therapists.
  • At times we have Master's levels interns working under supervision are often working at the practice and may be involved in group care, or if patients agree to seeing an intern, individual care.   
A few things to know about the practice:
  • For telehealth, the practice utilizes Doxy, which is a secure platform specifically designed for telehealth and that is free for clients to use.  There are advantages to telehealth, such as accessibility, but also disadvantages, such as the possibility of hacking, sessions becoming disconnected if you have poor internet connection, and the need for clients to be familiar and comfortable using technology platforms.  
  • Insurance is not accepted.
