Nothing is more interesting than people. Although I love math, physics, engineering, and chemistry, I chose to study psychology because of the challenge and importance of understanding what it means to be human. My Doctorate in clinical psychology was followed by a post-doctoral Master’s in clinical psychopharmacology. I have advanced training in evidenced-based therapies for couples, including Gottman’s methods (level 3) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (Sue Johnson’s EFT).I believe in the importance of the FAMILY unit. It is the very building block(s) of our society. Individual personalities are rooted in early family experiences. The success of our own family depends on our ability to learn and grow. My passion and privilege is to help families succeed.In therapy sessions I use humor and I strive to be personable, kind, and compassionate. My patients say they feel comfortable with me. I focus on safety, expression, understanding, and respect. I believe that if we were all-knowing, we would be all-forgiving.
