MY STORY . . .

I am a scientist at heart and I deeply care about my patients. I trained at one of the top clinical psychology graduate programs in the country and have worked under the mentorship of world-renowned experts in the field, including Dr. Edna Foa, Dr. Lori Zoellner, and Dr. Marsha Linehan.

Thanks to my rigorous training in both the science and practice of psychology, as well as my exclusive focus on anxiety, I am able to provide the most potent, effective therapy that exists for treating anxiety and related disorders while incorporating findings from the latest research.
