I am a licensed psychologist providing short and long-term psychotherapy to older adolescents and adults. My specialties include relationship difficulties, identity issues, anxiety, depression, mood and emotion dysregulation, family of origin issues, life transitions, grief and loss, sexuality, gender identity, trauma, and eating-related concerns.
Psychotherapy can be a very helpful and meaningful experience. With the right therapist it can be a rewarding way to learn more about yourself and your relationships with others, and can significantly improve your quality of life. I will work with you to address your specific needs and goals.
Prior to opening my practice in Santa Barbara in 2014, I had a psychotherapy practice in Vancouver, B.C. I subsequently completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Widener University in Pennsylvania. I did my postdoctoral residency at Princeton University, and my predoctoral internships at Swarthmore College and the Belmont Center in Philadelphia.
