Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist
NOTE ABOUT TELEHEALTH: In this age of COVID-19, I engage with clients only via telehealth and not in-person. New clients must have access to video capabilities through smartphone, computer, or a tablet. I use Doxy.me and it is a confidential platform that is HIPAA compliant.
If you are here, then you are going through something and are looking for guidance and support. Excellent first step! I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice since 2011. Originally from Chicago and a graduate of the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, I am a generalist who works with a full range of issues and disorders and a specialist in grief and loss.

Areas of Expertise
Grief and Loss
Trained as a generalist, I help my clients address a vast range of concerns that they are having in their lives. I am also a grief specialist and have helped folks understand the process of grief and transition through painful losses to get to a more comfortable experience of their lives.
Grief can strike you if you lose a family member, partner, child, pet, job, or receive an alarming health diagnosis. Loss can come out of the blue and knock you over. Therapy can be instrumental in helping you navigate your thoughts, feelings, and even your body's reaction to loss.
I feel passionately about the challenges inherent in all forms of transition, adjustment to change, and how that impacts a person's evolution. I believe in the power of growth from experiences of pain and struggle as well as the importance of engaging mindfully in becoming the person you seek to be.
I'm located in Mesa very near the intersection of Baseline and Country Club. I keep daytime weekdays and limited evening hours. I accept credit/debit/benefits cards. I accept BCBS, Aetna, and Medicare but am able to provide a superbill if you wish to use your out-of-network benefits for visits. I am fluent in English only.
