I currently provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy for children, adolescents, college students, adults, and families. I am a licensed psychologist in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (#10965). Services are offered in my brick and mortar office in Lexington and/or through telehealth (e.g., videoconferencing technology).
I have training and significant experience treating psychological problems including:
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Emotion dysregulation
- Traumatic stress
- Learning and school problems
- Interpersonal relationship problems
- Parenting problems
- Acculturative stress
- Stress related to marginalization, bias, and discrimination
- Stress related to social and cultural identity development
Psychotherapy with me is grounded in the process of evidence-based practice, meaning I integrate the best available psychological and behavioral health research and knowledge with your values, preferences, and context in order to provide you and/or your loved one with the best care. Work with me is skills-based and action oriented. My work is grounded in strategies and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and multicultural psychology.
If you are interested in potentially working with me please contact me by phone (339-970-8573) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I am happy to set up an initial phone conversation. This initial phone intake is complimentary and a great way to determine if I may be a good match for the services you are seeking and your current needs. During the phone intake I’ll also provide further details about my practice, my current availability, fees, etc.
I am an out-of-network provider and do not contract directly with any insurance companies. Upon request, I can provide a billing summary with diagnostic codes that can be submitted to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.
The frameworks of culturally responsive practice, cultural humility, and intersectionality have enormously shaped my work as a clinician, researcher, and social justice advocate. A contemporary understanding of intersectionality suggests that all individuals have membership in multiple social identity categories, some of which may have been historically marginalized (e.g., people of color, LGBTQ folks) and others, historically more privileged (e.g., male, high SES). In all of my work I strive to integrate an understanding of intersectionality by acknowledging that culturally uninformed models of mental health treatment are often insufficient for patients from all types of backgrounds and experiences.
