I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I earned a Psy.D. in Professional Psychology from the George Washington University in 2015.
During my studies at GWU I completed clinical externships at an outpatient clinic, psychiatric hospital, and therapeutic day school for severely disturbed adolescents. I completed a predoctoral internship at RAMS, Inc., a community mental health agency in San Francisco, California. As part of my work at RAMS, I completed clinical rotations at the Comprehensive Crisis Center, PAES Vocational services, and an outpatient clinic. The didactic part of my training on internship focused on cultural competency, which has been an essential part of my clinical work with first-generation immigrants in psychotherapy and psychological assessment.
After licensure in 2015, I worked in private practice and at the Neurology Clinic of Washington, where I conducted psychological evaluations of patients with neurological issues.
I have a strong interest in integrating neuroscience with modern theories of mental functioning and I incorporate this knowledge in my clinical work. I am a Clinical Fellow of the Neuropsychoanalysis Association and a member of Maryland Psychological Association. My paper on trauma psychotherapy won an award from American Psychological Association’s Division 29. I have peer reviewed publications in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis.
I currently see adolescents, adults, and elderly clients in my private practice, where I provide individual, couples, and family psychotherapy, as well as psychological assessment. I provide Telehealth services via secure, HIPPA-compliant video conference platform.
In addition to Maryland, I am authorized to practice telehealth psychotherapy in 32 other states where PSYPACT law is effective, including AL, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, CNMI, DC, DE, GA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, ME, MN, MO, NE, NV, NH, NC, NJ, OH, OK, PA, TN, TX, UT, VA WV, WI.
