Practice Description:
I am conducting all appointments via a secure tele-link or alternatively by phone, at clients preference. (telehealth)

Psychotherapy services should address the specific needs of each clients. Having trained in a variety of evidence-based practices, I work together with my clients to determine which approach works best for them, with the intent of addressing both symptoms and long-standing patterns of behavior. My approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and trauma-focused therapy. I also have a background in Jungian psychodynamic treatment.

I work with adults /couples of all ages, including college-aged and older adults. I specialize in treating mood (e.g., depression and bipolar disorder) and anxiety disorders, major life transitions (e.g., career, college), relational /familial concerns and trauma /PTSD. I also have specialized training in treating ADHD, sleep disturbance and substance use.

In addition to my clinical work, I was on faculty at UCLA and trained clinicians on evidence-based practices.
