I have been in private practice in San Francisco since 2002. I love being a psychologist and I value the unique relationship I have with each one of my clients. I have a profound respect for the deeply personal nature of psychotherapy. I feel it is a true privilege to have the opportunity to
accompany each of my clients throughout their process of self-discovery and healing.
My style as a psychotherapist is warm, engaging, and candid. I bring a sense of curiosity to the work and encourage my clients to take a genuine interest in getting to know themselves in new ways. I greatly value my own personal growth and development, as well as life-long learning—which I believe are integral aspects of being an effective psychotherapist.
In addition to my clinical work, I supervise pre-doctoral Psychology interns at California Pacific Medical Center and serve as a psychotherapist/consultant to parents and faculty of the San Francisco Parent Participation Nursery Schools.
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology (now Palo Alto University) in 2000, and completed my predoctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the McCauley Institute of St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco in both inpatient and outpatient treatment. I also trained at Westside Crisis Clinic in San Francisco and St. Mary’s College Counseling Center in Orinda.
