I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I received my Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I completed an internship at Johns Hopkins’ School of Medicine, and a research fellowship at Vanderbilt University. I have been working in the field of psychology for over 20 years, using only evidence-based approaches proven to improve mental and emotional well-being.
I am a board-certified behavior analyst, trained in a broad range of behavior therapies. These include family therapies, CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Applied Behavior Analysis, and various methodologies within the broader behavioral research. What does all that mean for you? It means that I take a practical and active approach to immediately assessing what is affecting your life negatively. I introduce solutions to you very early on in your treatment. I am constantly assessing your progress, and checking in with you through the use of a “dashboard” reflecting your specific mental and emotional improvement.
I live in the Boulder area with my wife and three children. I enjoy playing guitar, hiking, martial arts, travel, and spending time with my family. I entered the field of psychology early in life, with an interest in conducting research and helping children with severe disabilities and their families. I continue to have a portion of my practice focused on families struggling with the issues of raising children with developmental and behavioral needs.
