I am a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Denver, Colorado. I specialize in providing individual Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for adults. My approach centers on helping my clients live a meaningful life, engage in effective behaviors, and have a healthy relationship with their thoughts and emotions.
I earned my Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard University, and my bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder. In addition to my private practice, I also serve as psychologist in the spinal cord injury clinic at the Rocky Mountain VA Medical Center, where I work with veterans with a variety of physical disabilities and chronic health conditions. I am passionate about teaching and training mental health professionals, and have served as a nationally-recognized trainer and training consultant in ACT for the VA. I have presented my work nationally and internationally at ACBS World Conferences and served as a lecturer in the psychology department at Harvard University.
I also co-founded and co-host the popular psychology podcast Psychologists Off The Clock.
I love living in Colorado, my home state, and I love my job as a psychologist! When I’m not working, I enjoy reading fiction, cooking, travel, and getting outdoors in the beautiful Colorado Rockies with my family and dog.
