With 15+ years of therapy experience, I enjoy helping clients realize their potential and believe that creating a supportive and caring environment is essential to this process. My areas of expertise include treating depression, anxiety, and relationship/interpersonal issues. I view therapy as a partnership where I have the privilege of helping clients navigate their lives more effectively. Clients seek my help for a variety of reasons, including adjusting to major life transitions, better coping with emotions, breaking old behavior patterns, or better understanding themselves.
I have a special interest in treating perinatal mood disorders, and provide support for pregnancy loss and infertility issues. Postpartum depression affects 10-20% of new mothers and 10% of new fathers. If you or someone you love is experiencing perinatal anxiety or depression, know that it is treatable.
My training has included a broad range of clinical experiences including working at the VA of Northern California Healthcare System and in the Department of Psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente. In addition, my research on bipolar spectrum disorders has been published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology and Bipolar Disorders.
