About

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety/phobia, depression/ bipolar, chronic pain/ medical condition, sleep disturbance, or dual diagnosis/ substance abuse, you will find that my treatment framework allows you make considerable progress in symptom reduction each week. To bolster our in-person psychotherapy sessions, I provide email exchange throughout the week (at no additional cost) to help you make further progress toward your treatment goals. You will find me to be very accessible, knowledgeable, compassionate, and effective at addressing your specific therapy needs, and you will make important life changes more quickly than imagined.
As the founding Clinical Director of Intensive Outpatient, Partial Hospitalization, and Residential Programs in San Francisco from 2004-2010, I assisted many individuals in achieving full recovery from their psychiatric symptoms. Now in private practice, my clients often share how our work helps them feel and live more freely.
I have nearly 20 years of experience treating Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, along with chronic pain, anxiety and mood disorders. You and I will work intensely to see to it that you experience the types of changes in your life that you desire and deserve.
