I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with expertise in treating panic disorder. My relaxed and gentle demeanor puts clients at east and allows me to build rapport quickly.   My therapy therapeutic style is strongly based in CBT and client-centered therapy.  I enjoy using Virtual Reality equipment for treating phobias as well.  My work in primary care has made me effective in brief, solution-focused interventions and enabled me to address the interrelationship of chronic illness and mental health.
