Hi! I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and specialize in treating teens and young adults struggling with anxiety and related disorders. I also have an interest in working with individuals and families struggling with PTSD, depression, grief, and coping with chronic or terminal illness. I work closely with clients to identify their strengths, and then help them harness these strengths to overcome obstacles in their way. I respect and celebrate diversity, and am dedicated to ensuring that therapy is a good fit for my clients’ cultural background and identities. I also utilize treatments that have been tested through research, and work collaboratively with my clients to create a plan for their treatment.
I am a triple Hoo, earning my Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate from the University of Virginia. I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Virginia creating an app for teens to help reduce their anxiety, and at the University of Massachusetts Boston researching youth mentoring. Overall, my research and clinical work focus on promoting healthy youth development.
When not working, my husband and I enjoy exploring local hiking trails and spending lots of time with our three (hairless) cats. I work on Tuesday and Thursday evenings out of our Boar’s Head office and over teletherapy. I can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
