I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the District of Columbia (PSY1001308). I also hold a license to practice in Virginia (0810005567).
I received my B.A. in psychology from the University of Michigan and doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) from The George Washington University. While at The George Washington University, I served as an Instructional Assistant for a graduate-level class on psychodynamic theory. I was also awarded an early career psychologist/graduate student scholar award from Division 39 (Psychoanalysis), Section VIII (Couples and Families) of the American Psychological Association.
I have been providing psychotherapy and assessment services to clients in a variety of treatment settings since 2012. I completed my pre-doctoral internship in 2015 at Montana State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services, which was accredited by the American Psychological Association. I completed my post-doctoral work in both private practice and a non-profit community mental health clinic.
As a clinician, I tend to work from psychodynamic and relational perspectives. In the context of a supportive therapeutic relationship, we will work to understand how you think, feel, and act in the world and in relationships based on your experiences. By making links between the past and the present, we can gain insight into your current struggles and relationship dynamics, change maladaptive patterns, reduce psychological symptoms, and achieve the kind of change you want to see.
