Therapy is a journey we take together.

It’s a profound experience towards becoming the person you want to be. Like all journeys, there will be rewards and challenges. I will be there to guide and support you.

I am a clinical psychologist, working with adults who bring a wide range of issues to explore.

The approach I use is psychoanalytic/psychodynamic, because it has proven to be effective, and can be individually tailored for each person’s unique needs.

I am currently in private practice in Dallas, Texas. I previously had a practice in Seattle, Washington. Before that, I worked with adults at the Wright Institute Clinic, as well as students from the University of California (Berkeley, CA), and the California College of the Arts Counseling Center (Oakland, CA). I have helped students deal with challenges such as depression and anxiety, as well as career, academic, family, and relationship concerns.

My professional training included a practicum at the Boyer House Foundation (San Rafael, CA), an inpatient treatment facility where I supported clients challenged by major psychological issues. In my internship at Kaiser Permanente (Walnut Creek, CA), I facilitated men’s groups, as well as chemical dependence and co-dependence groups for adults and adolescents.

I have a doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) from the Wright Institute, and a bachelor’s degree in religion studies.  Prior to becoming a psychologist, I was a graduate student in folklore at UC Berkeley, and played jazz professionally.
