MEET THE TEAM
[ she/her ]
What do you most look forward to about the work you do?
My favorite thing about psychological evaluations is the uniqueness of every case. Sometimes I feel like a detective or like Dr. House - trying to find the best recommendations and resources for all the different people who come in.
What do you most value about the work you do?
I really value being able to use my expertise to help people - having something to offer that can improve people's lives is an amazing privilege.
What is something clients might never guess about you?
I am hopeless in the kitchen. Hopeless. I would rather do almost anything else than make dinner every night. Left to my own devices I would probably live on sandwiches and soda water.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Like lots of kids I really wanted to be a veterinarian until I learned that doesn't mean you just get to play with puppies and kittens all day.
I have over ten years of clinical experience working with adults with a wide range of presenting difficulties. One of the things I love best about being a psychologist is that it gives me the chance to do different things., and see clients with a wide range of concerns. My goal is not only to help discover existing difficulties, but to work with my clients on developing skills to help them thrive. I want you to feel like the time you spend with me will help improve your quality of life. I believe in the utility of ALL feelings, and work to bring empathy and humor into my treatment. I work hard to take my job as a psychologist seriously without taking myself too seriously.
On the personal side, I grew up in Southern California but have lived all over in beautiful places like Portland Oregon, Santa Barbara California, Grenada in the West Indies, and here in the lovely front range. I enjoy running, gardening, reading, and spending time exploring the world with my husband and son. I have a fat grumpy old cat named Coltrane, who will testify that I also make a mean tuna salad.
