Additional Information

Clinical Psychologist
I am a licensed psychologist, with a doctorate in psychology degree. I am specially trained in four main areas: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I provide treatment to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, and also teach and supervise other clinicians.
Everyone needs a little help in life now and then. I work collaboratively with teens, families, couples, and individuals helping them to identify and solve the problems that are getting in the way of achieving their goals. I am direct, compassionate, and use my sense of humor in helping people to make changes in their life. My clients and I work as a team and we often include family, friends, coworkers, or other community organizations or members as resources. In our work together, we can get you back on track to accomplishing your goals. The areas I have experience and success are: anxiety, depression, ADHD, neuro/psycho/educational assessments, relationship problems, trauma, drug and/or alcohol abuse, anger problems, bipolar disorder, self-harming, diverse clients, and academic problems. I provide both brief and long-term therapy using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as family and couples therapy

My specialties fall into four categories: 1) Teenagers - I have worked with teenagers for 20 years. I work with out of control teens as well as teens that are depressed , anxious, and suicidal. 2) Couples/Families - My focus has been in working with couples and families to improve relationships. 3) Individual Adults - 50% of my therapy practice is treating individual adults for ADHD, anxiety, depression, & trauma. 4) Psych Testing - I do neuro/psycho/educational assessment for ADHD, learning disorders, & behavioral problems.

Since I work with individuals, families, couples, teens, adults, and do psychological testing, I can work from a variety of modalities and take into account many aspects that other therapists cannot. For more information about my practice, please call me at (415) 686-9544 or go to my website at
Alliant International University, San Francisco CA


I have been working with individuals and families since 1998 by helping them to make changes in their lives. I obtained my Master's and Doctoral degrees from Alliant International University, California School of Professional Psychology. Prior to my graduate studies, I had worked with children, teens and families in teen shelters, a residential treatment program, a wilderness program, and drug and alcohol inpatient program. During graduate school, I worked with individuals, couples, and families and provided psychological assessments in various settings such as community clinics, a day treatment program, and a school. I have worked with a variety of clients spanning all different races, cultures, sexual orientations, gender identification, religions, ability, and socioeconomic status.
