Clinical Psychologist, Reno, NV
I am a Licensed Psychologist in Reno, Nevada, with over 20 years of specialized education, training, and experience in the provision of psychological services to individuals, couples, groups, and organizations. Outside of private practice, my career has focused on "treatment resistant" clients and underserved populations.
I work primarily with adults, young adults, and couples. I am a depth psychologist with an approach to psychotherapy that is evidence-based, relational, and psychoanalytically informed. I have completed Level 3 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
I specialize in evaluation and therapy that create unique, safe, and supportive relationships in which individuals and couples — struggling with most any of life's certain difficulties — are welcomed to embark upon their own unique adventures toward greater freedom, connection, and fulfillment.
I am a preferred, in-network provider for Hometown Health, Prominence Health, HealthSCOPE, and CDS Group insurance plans, as well as a credentialed out-of-network provider for TRICARE through U.S. Military West. My services are also covered as an out-of-network provider for most other insurance carriers.
As the next step on your journey, I invite you to explore this site for more information on my professional background, as well as my psychological evaluation; individual and couples therapy; and, organizational and clinical consultation services in the Reno - Sparks area of Northern Nevada's Washoe County.
Connection & Understanding Inside
Connection and understanding are key ingredients in helping, and in psychotherapeutic success. Yet, true empathic understanding and genuineness come from life experience not commonly found in clinical psychologists. This is what makes me different. I can connect and understand where other professionals cannot. My life experience, combined with the depth of my training, lets me focus on both immediate symptoms and the origins of problems in living.
I am currently accepting new clients for couples therapy only. A waiting list has been established for individual therapy and evaluation services. If you feel that we may work well together, please do not hesitate to contact my office to schedule an initial consultation.
