About the Work

I am a clinical psychologist offering private practice psychotherapy in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. I utilize evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy techniques, and I work from an integrative psychodynamic/relational approach with a limited number of clients as appropriate. My clinical strengths include grief and loss, trauma and recovery, relationship concerns, depression, suicide prevention, career dilemmas, substance use, military and veterans concerns, and long-term family problems. I value the relationship that develops within therapy, and my goal is to provide a comfortable, safe, unique space to address your most important needs.

I am a specialist in the treatment of PTSD and suicidal behavior. I provide Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), a short-term, evidence-based treatment for PTSD, and I utilize Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide (BCBT), an evidence-based protocol addressing suicidal thoughts and behavior. I am happy to offer consultation sessions to discuss treatment options focused on your specific background and current concerns. I am also a nationally-recognized subject matter expert in military and veterans concerns with extensive clinical experience, and am happy to discuss how psychotherapy and military culture can be successfully integrated in a safe, confidential setting.

I frequently work with people utilizing their out-of-network benefits or on a fee-for-service basis. Very limited in-network insurance is accepted through OSU insurance plans. I would be happy to discuss how this commonly works as well as fee structures for ongoing, specialty, or consultation services.
