About

I am a faculty member at UCSD and a psychologist at the San Diego VA. I also have a small private practice where I provide warm and collaborative psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, and older adults. My therapeutic approach emphasizes an appreciation for the complexity and uniqueness of all of my clients. I work with clients by creating a safe and supportive space focused on building resiliency so that you can better understand yourself and obtain direction on how and where to grow. I will collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs. *Currently treatment is delivered by Telehealth*
Along with a broad general practice focused on relationship stress, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, & addiction, I am also trained as a Health Psychologist with expertise in cancer and other health conditions. I use the latest evidenced-based treatments to help my clients achieve their goals.
I have worked for ten years in various settings including VA Hospitals, cancer centers, alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs, and primary care clinics. I primarily work with individuals. Supervision, training, and consultation services are also available.
