Born in NY and raised in the Midwest, I have enjoyed using my profession as an excuse to move around the country. I moved to California in 2011 as a postdoctoral fellow with Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa. Prior to moving west I was an undergrad at Manhattan College in Bronx, NY, attended graduate school at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and completed my pre-doctoral internship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN. In 2017 I co-authored a book, 101 Ways to Conquer Teen Anxiety, published by Ulysses Press.

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in treating adults with mood disorders, depression, anxiety, and other life stressors. I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University with a sub specialization in community mental health. I have had a passion for Psychology since I was an undergrad and completed a B.A. in psychology from Pepperdine University. Later on I moved to the Bay Area in 2007 from Southern California to attend graduate school and have decided to make it my permanent home. In therapy, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify their strengths and define goals. I strive to create a safe space for clients to feel accepted and I use a variety of evidence-based techniques in accordance with each client’s individual needs. My goal is to learn and understand my clients by meeting them where they are and helping them to uncover their own journey of healing.

As a clinical psychologist, I have extensive experience providing caring and compassionate therapy services to college students, adults, and couples.
I help people manage emotional distress (such as anxiety and depression), increase interpersonal effectiveness, and negotiate major life transitions such as separations, loss, and other challenges.
My style is collaborative and I use an integrated approach, combining interpersonal therapy with cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness techniques.
I also use EMDR techniques when indicated to help alleviate distressing memories.
