About Me

I am a clinical psychologist with over twenty years of private practice experience doing individual, couples, family therapy and psychological testing.  I received a doctorate degree from The University of Texas at Austin in Clinical Psychology.  I am also trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, Filial and Child-Focused Play therapies.  My work integrates attachment, psychodynamic, neurobiological and CBT theories.  Finally, I have an extensive background working with all members of the adoption triad. This includes individual therapy, leading groups, legislative advocacy, and public speaking.
