Practice Description: How I Work:

Clients repeatedly express to me that I'm "different" than other therapists with whom they've worked because I "don't just sit there and listen." I love hearing this because I work really hard to actively engage with my clients during our sessions. When you talk to me I am always thinking about how what you're saying fits together with other things that I know about you and how that relates to the issue that brought you to therapy. If there's some connection that I see, some pattern that I'm noticing, or something from my training or experience I think might help you in that moment - I tell you! While I believe that you are resilient and able to make good decisions for yourself, I also believe you're coming to me for a reason and your time is valuable. I have extensive experience with both brief and open-ended therapy, so I feel confident that I can help you no matter what kind of time commitment you want to make to therapy.

Education and Experience:

I have been fortunate to have world class training and work experience, receiving my BA in Psychology from Yale University, my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology, and working for 5 years at Stanford University's Counseling and Psychological Services Center.
