As a Columbia-trained psychologist and trauma specialist, I offer treatment for post-traumatic stress, addiction, grief, anxiety, depression, insecure attachment, and other trauma-related conditions. I utilize a combination of EMDR, internal family systems (IFS), cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapies to provide a somatic and source-focused approach to healing. I educate my clients on the universality of traumatic and addictive experiences. I define trauma broadly as any past experience that remains charged and disturbing, and thus has value in alleviating mental health challenges in the present.
Traumatic and addictive elements exist in all of us and are not static, but rather ebb and flow as reverberations of past experiences. l frame the looping amplification of addiction as stemming from a healthy need to feel safe, but in a way that can become self-destructive through the distortion of trauma that resides in our nervous systems, until processed.
I am a licensed psychologist, speaker, and instructor based in Oakland and San Francisco, and online across CA. I received my PhD in clinical psychology from Columbia University and completed my post-doctoral clinical residency at Kaiser Psychiatry. My research examines the potential for psychological suffering to catalyze personal growth and transformation.
