I am currently a psychotherapist as well as the Director of Psychotherapy for the First Episode Psychosis Programme at Transformations. I have a PhD in psychology and counseling from Southern Illinois University, Post-Graduate Study in Psychology and Neuroscience at Harvard University, Clinical Neuroscience research at the University of Oxford, as well as a Post-Graduate Certificate in the History of Medicine, also from Oxford. I also have training in Mentalization-Based Treatment from the Anna Freud Centre in London.
As a clinician, I have interests in the treatment of psychosis, Bipolar Mood Disorder, somatics, neurotherapeutics (TMS, ECT). In addition, I also work with patients experiencing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, life stress. I also have a keen interest in working with diverse populations especially the LGBT community. I enjoy working with transgender patients and being a resource for them. I meet patients where they are at in therapy and work with them on deciding what they think would be best for them and what would be helpful. I utilize a wide variety of therapies including psychoanalytic psychotherapy, CBT, CBTp, DBT, and MBT. If you have any questions or feel that I can be helpful in any way, I would be more than happy and keen to meet with you and discuss how I can be of help!
