Licensed Psychologist (PSY 28905)
“The most dangerous stories we make up are the narratives that diminish our inherent worthiness. We must reclaim the truth about our lovability, divinity, and creativity.” ~ Brene Brown
I am a clinical psychologist who is passionate about supporting clients as they live through the harsh realities of misogyny, gender inequities, racism, ableism, and other forms of oppression. Many clients start treatment with me because of their struggle with anxiety, OCD, panic attacks, phobias, and stressors due to difficult relationships or life transitions. I also support clients in exploring spirituality, sexual and gender identity, racial/ethnic identity, intergenerational conflict, racism-related stress and trauma, and Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) traits. I help clients improve psychological flexibility, or their ability to be in the present moment more fully and choose actions that are congruent with their deeply held values. As the Perinatal and Postpartum Program Coordinator, I also specialize in providing meaningful support for pregnant women and new parents as they navigate pregnancy and the postpartum period. Whether you’ve experienced birth trauma, pregnancy or infant loss, or changes in mood and anxiety during or after pregnancy, I’d be honored to journey with you through this season.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary’s Graduate School of Psychology and a BA in Psychology from Amherst College. My practice is inspired by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, systems theories, and liberation psychology. As a lifelong learner I continue to grow in my areas of specialty by regularly participating in consultation groups for Perinatal Mental Health and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
