I am a clinical psychologist specializing in therapy for anxiety, depression, and postpartum disorders. My approach is integrative but I am most aligned with Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Schema-focused therapy, both evidence-based treatments. I also utilize many self-regulation techniques and aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
IPT is informed by attachment theory and focuses on improving social supports, facilitating role transitions, and grieving unresolved loss. IPT has been extensively researched and proven highly effective for depression and postpartum disorders. Schema therapy helps people identify their core beliefs about self and others so that they change long-standing relationship patterns. Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques help us to accept what is while also making changes. Many clients with trauma histories respond very well to these techniques. I hope to help clients appreciate their histories and transform them into opportunities for growth and self-actualization.
