I am a licensed clinical psychologist interested in hearing people’s stories, understanding what drives human behavior, and being a part of effecting important change for those seeking it. I graduated magna cum laude from UCLA with a B.A. in Psychology, and earned my M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Connecticut, Storrs. Always interested in neuroscience and the intersection between brain and behavior, I pursued and was awarded board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology. My clinical practice includes individual and couples therapy, as well as neuropsychological assessments.
I work from an interpersonal frame of reference and use a variety of techniques ranging from cognitive-behavioral to depth therapy approaches in my work with adult individuals and with couples. The therapy relationship not only provides objective reflection and a sounding board for issues, but itself can be healing as clients become more aware of how they operate in relationships and explore healthier ways of connecting.
I make every attempt to understand a client's unique situation and honor their background without discrimination on the basis of race, religion, age, or gender.
