About Me

Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time

I specialize in clinical and concierge psychology and can help within a  wide spectrum of clinical mental health concerns within the Phoenix Metropolitan area. 


I  completed my  B.A. in psychology, magna cum laude, at the Barret Honor's College at Arizona State University. and my doctorate in clinical psychology at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology (dissertation title: "Coping with Multiple Sclerosis, Translation and Factor Analysis of the Zurich Coping Questionnaire").

I mastered post-graduate training at Minneapolis Public Schools, Tempe Elementary School District, and Hennepin County Medical Center. Recent training sites include Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Erickson Institute, University of Edinburgh, Summit for Clinical Excellence, Arizona Association for Play Therapy, and the EMDR Institute.


With nearly 20 years of experience as a psychologist in diverse settings, I am always eager to learn well-researched methods and I am currently serving as a private clinician working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are concierge psychological services with a focus on neurodiversity, PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD.

In addition to being a prominent clinician, I have presented at national conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of depression, anxiety, autism, and motivation.

My passion is to succeed in helping my clients with diverse backgrounds and needs to establish personalized and evidence-based approaches with a concierge method that will help you achieve your goals, move toward self-exploration and live your life to the fullest.
