I’m a psychologist practicing in Pinellas County for 15 years with offices in Largo and Palm Harbor. I’ve trained in numerous clinical settings including university counseling centers, VA hospitals and private practices. I am a generalist by training and am comfortable working with people experiencing a wide range of psychological and interpersonal difficulties. I have also cultivated a speciality in working with older adults as well as emerging adults. Underlying my theoretical approach, is the core belief that compassion, empathy and safety are paramount to effective therapy.In therapy, I place great emphasis on the healing properties of the therapeutic relationship. While empirically validated techniques are essential to positive outcomes, my goal is to ensure that your experience and personal struggles are understood in all their complexity and to work collaboratively with you to achieve the goals you bring to our work.My greatest aspiration as your therapist will be to assist you in cultivating meaningful relationships in your life and overcoming destructive patterns of thought, emotion, behavior that keep you from realizing your full potential.
