I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist (MFT #41045). In 2001 I received a Master of Science (MS) in Clinical Psychology from San Francisco State University. In 2003 I completed an intensive two-year post-graduate training program at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley.

I began practicing psychotherapy in 1999, and since then have worked with diverse groups of people with a variety of diagnoses, as well as in various schools and community clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2010, I have led a support group for Clinical Psychology graduate students at San Francisco State University. This group is part of the required curriculum.

I also supervise graduate-level interns who work as therapists with children at the elementary schools in the Albany School District.

Other places which I have worked and consulted at include: Early Childhood Mental Health Program (Richmond), Jewish Family and Children's Services (San Francisco), The Psychotherapy Institute Community Clinic (Berkeley), San Francisco State Community Clinic, Neil Cummins Elementary School (Larkspur), and Cobb Elementary School (San Francisco). I also worked as a clinical faculty member at the Women's Therapy Center in Berkeley.

To keep abreast of changes in the field, as well as to explore and develop new clinical interests, I regularly attend courses, workshops, read clinical books and journals, and engage in professional consultation.
