More about me: Clinically, I specialize in narrative and ACT therapies while also incorporating psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness strategies to help clients realize preferred values, manage symptoms and reduce stress. When I'm not practicing psychology, I'm often practicing music; my background as a professional musician includes touring and recording with bands on the east and west coasts.
