Clinical Interest for Patients
I specialize in brief, research-supported approaches that offer practical solutions, such as new skills and ways of thinking, to help patients better function and enjoy their lives. My areas of specialization include treatment for anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, concentration issues, and trauma. I also offer a 5-session research-backed treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) called Written Exposure Therapy. As a primary care psychologist, I provide brief psychotherapy services (typically 4-6 visits). I also can help patients establish with longer-term services as needed or desired. Please note that I am only able to accept patient referrals from primary care providers in the CU Medicine Centennial or Landmark clinics.
I am passionate about providing whole-person care that is warm, collaborative, and evidence-based. I enjoy working with patients from diverse backgrounds and individualize my approach based on the strengths, needs, values, and resources of patients. I'm proud to offer an LGBTQ+ safe space.

Interests & Activities
