In 2012, I opened my practice to offer a range counseling and consulting services to help patients get unstuck:
I specialize in delivering evidence-based, culturally-sensitive interventions to treat problematic substance use, substance use disorders, stress related to racial and sexual identity development, relationship concerns, depression, anxiety (including performance anxiety), weight loss, chronic pain and illness management.
I also provide fertility counseling and consulting. My own fertility journey led me to eventually expand my practice and support others who are struggling to start or expand their families. I provide culturally-sensitive therapy for pregnancy loss, postpartum depression, and individuals in fertility treatment. I conduct consultation for Intended Parents receiving IUI, IVF or working with Gestational Carriers (GCs). I conduct screenings with GC candidates, egg donors, and sperm donors.
I enjoy working with athletes to motivate them toward personal change and achieve optimal performance. I provide evidence-based, culturally-sensitive treatment and psychological evaluations with collegiate and professional athletes presenting with problematic substance use and substance use disorders.
I also provide workshops and consultation for healthcare providers feeling stuck in motivating patients to change.
