ABOUT ME I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed in Georgia. I practice at the Atlanta Center for Cognitive Therapy and teach and do research with local universities and advocacy organizations. I completed my PhD at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, completed a research postdoctoral fellowship at Yale, and completed a clinical postdoctoral fellowship at Emory. I am an Atlanta native and have been practicing in Atlanta for three years since moving back from Connecticut.
PSYCHOTHERAPY I currently see clients for psychotherapy who are 12 years of age or older, primarily via telehealth due to the pandemic. My office hours are currently on Thursday and Saturday. When possible, I prefer to work with diverse clients whose characteristics or background may confer discrimination or disadvantage in our society. In psychotherapy, I am to assist people who want to address life struggles, change problematic behaviors, and improve quality of life. As with many kinds of training, professional support can motivate and accelerate real change in unhelpful thoughts, emotions, perceptions, and habits. By looking into psychotherapists, you have already taken one of the most important steps to change direction toward where you want to be. Psychotherapy empowers you to face problems that feel insurmountable. Recovery and resilience are possible. I work with clients from a collaborative Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) orientation. I prioritize applying the best research-based techniques and assessment carefully and dynamically matched to individual characteristics and preferences. I apply behavioral, cognitive, motivational, acceptance and commitment, dialectical, and mindfulness-based approaches, with tailored goals for behavioral change in personal, social, and functional roles. Please feel free to contact me, and we can set up a phone call to determine if I might be the right fit for you or your loved one.
