My Therapy Style
I use an integrative approach to therapy with a focus on evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention, ACT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Multicultural focused interventions. I approach therapy through a flexible, interactive, and compassionate lens that allows me to tailor therapy to help clients feel safe while working to achieve their short and long-term mental health goals.
Education and Training
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from American University, completed an American Psychological Association-accredited doctoral internship at the Catholic University of America Counseling Center, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at George Washington University's Colonial Health Center. My earlier work included positions at the American University Counseling Center, the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Children's National Medical Center, the James Gray Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Clinic, and neuropsychological private practices. In addition, I have received extensive training in the treatment of OCD and through the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF)- Behavioral Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) and in couples therapy through the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT).
