Most people enter psychotherapy hoping for a more comfortable, insightful, and fulfilling existence. I’m at the Birmingham Maple Clinic to support others in a secure relaxed environment as they begin to feel empowered overtime. My humanistic training taught me that psychotherapy begins with a compassionate and empathic relationship between the therapist and patient. I’m a mindful psychologist who incorporates a humanistic-existential perspective with a relational psychoanalytic approach. While obtaining my doctoral degree in clinical psychology I studied recovery from addictions with regards to fear, vulnerability, shame, love, and a mindful life. Please note my other specializations listed above.
